9780615718705: Eating Mangoes: A Residential Treatment Experience

This is for all who battle with an eating disorder and the question: Am I worth more than twenty pounds? This is a must read for those who stand with us in the battle: our family, friends, therapists, and sponsors. To eat a mango is to enter into a process of cutting and scraping the fruit from its skin and seed. It is a process that takes some time and is a little messy. And, it is so worth the reward in the end! The same is true for the journey of recovery. Recovery is a process from beginning to end. It takes time and is messy. And, recovery is also so worth the reward in the end! An influential woman in Elefant's life gave her the wisdom that life is a process. Recovery is a process. There are no quick fixes, it is not black and white, and the joy is in the journey. The light bulb went on one day as Elefant was eating a mango and she discovered what her mentor had meant! Half the fun of eating a mango is in the process of working the fruit free; half the fun of doing life and doing recovery is in the process of doing it with other people. Eating Mangoes is an inside look at what residential treatment is like. It is a glimpse inside the mind of someone with an eating disorder or other addiction. It is a story of hope. Eating Mangoes is a must-read for all who have been affected by eating disorders and their co-occurring disorders. It is a must-read for all who have a connection to the residential treatment world: survivors themselves, family, friends, and professionals. May we dream of recovery and dream bigger than recovery to lives that have greater meaning.
