    Provided very useful tools!

    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.

    Encouraging

    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.
