Recently I came across a terrific blog called “Romancing the Road to Recovery” by Jo Baltodano. In her blog, Jo says she suffered from an eating disorder since the 4th grade, but she didn’t seek help until age 25 when she was near death. She decided to engage in treatment and chose to fight to live.
Jo’s blog is an amazing account of her ongoing journey of recovery. In one of her posts, Jo outlines the ‘ABC’s of Recovery’ which I am reprinting here with her permission.
What’s so great about this list is that within it you will find many ways to encourage self-care, positive values, self-worth, and seeking support from others. All of these are so vital to promote hope, personal growth, and recovery.
So here they are – Jo Baltodano’s ‘ABC’s of Recovery’:
