I say YES to all of the above. And that is why I attend Marino groups twice a week. Just like my partner watches soccer twice a week – it’s as simple as that with no room for judgement or doubt.
I love coming to group. It keeps me sane and provides structure and meaning in my life, especially during this Pandemic! I don’t think about time or how long it is taking as I am simply enjoying the journey (most of the time and when I am not, I am usually learning something on a deeper level which initially causes some discomfort).
Recovering from ED doesn’t have to be a dirty little secret! We don’t need to carry the shame, embarrassment, guilt or pressure anymore.
Lets be proud of our choices

Lets be proud of our Recovery
Lets be proud of our gorgeous group
