Recovered from Eating Disorder

When I was a teenager I had an eating disorder that I tried to hide from my family although my sister found out and threatened to tell my mom if I didn't stop. It didn't take long for me to start eating again but the thoughts and the need for control lasted many years. It's been about 35 years now and I like who I am and even though I still pay attention to food, being on thyroid medicine helps me not restrict so much since I can metabolize my food better than I did when I was younger.

Are there any others here who have recovered?

I have ocd with many other things myself but not eating.
