On the way

In this video clip from the "Getting There - Recovery from Eating Disorders" DVD produced by the Eating Disorders Foundation of Victoria, participants discuss the moment when they realised they were getting better and would eventually become well again. They discuss the setbacks and difficult moments on the road to recovery including relapses, false-starts, binges and "bad days". They emphasise the need to "keep going" and the importance of the support, understanding and reassurance of family, friends, parents, therapists and medical professionals.
