Overview

Recovery from an eating disorder requires support of all kinds, and this book is filled with ideas, exercises, and insights. Based on Kerrigan’s own inspiring story, Telling Ed No! is a toolbox of over 100 practical recovery tools, from family interventions, yoga, and massage, to music, role playing and even holding ice! Each tool brings the recovery process to life with prompts for reflection and discussion. Readers looking for guidance will learn: why having a “treatment team” is essential and how to assemble one, how to end self-destructive behaviors such as cutting and over-exercising, and how to transform Ed’s controlling rules into powerful, new recovery rules. Part-self-help book, part memoir, this unique workbook combines the power of real-life experiences and candid straight talk with suggestions and exercises that offer both hope and creative guidance.

This went into my library of Ed resources! It provides great advice on tools to use. Some of them are things that are instant help and others are things that will work over time. The book also gives how those tools were applied by the author and ways to apply them for yourself. I have not found anything that triggers Ed behaviors for me - similar to Life Without Ed and Goodbye Ed, Hello Me. I found it helpful to write down some of the tips and put them in easily accessible places - my wallet, journal, draft email. I also have not felt ashamed of my negative behaviors like i have with some of the Ed books out there. I have been incredibly encouraged and know this book will definitely be a help in my recovery.

Cheryl Kerrigan is an inspiration, but her book provides much more than just a recovery story. The combination of helpful coping skills and encouragement makes this an invaluable tool for anyone who is on the journey of recovery, regardless of where they are on their path. Although Cheryl's struggles are primarily with eating disorders, the skills in the book can be used for coping with any mental illness.
