Anonymous - I really don't think you becoming an Ed therapist is a good idea
Anonymous - These anons are so naive....obviously by the time you are a licensed therapist you will have been through tons of therapy yourself, and will be recovered enough to do it! I'm in a masters program for it right now, and lots of people on my class are recovered from various things, including eds, and they are doing spectacularly :)
Anonymous - Keep fighting, Trine. I know it's hard and there's going to be really, really shitty days like today might have been, but you can do this.
Yeah, fucking sucks.
Anonymous - Do you think it would be hard to not get triggered by being a therapist for people with eating disorders?
Anonymous - Your letter is the most inspiring and beautiful thing. I am literally crying. I am stood in the corner of a room in hospital, feeling horrendous after lunch. But reading this gives me faith and hope. You will make a wonderful councillor because you know how to connect with people's souls without even trying. I hope you continue to move forward positively because I'm cheering you on!!! X
That’s amazing, thank you. Hang in there!
Anonymous - I think you'd be a wonderful counselor! It seems like that would suit you best, as psychologists are more about diagnosing, but counselors are more about caring and guidance. Much more human if you ask me :) and your experiences with suffering can help you relate to people, so on sure they will be able to have a positive result, not hold you back in your career!
Today turned out to be the worst fucking day.
I’m not fucking staying here.

Anonymous - Your letter is amazing!! I am so proud of you! Keep it up <3
Anonymous - Do you want to be a therapist for eating disorders? Do you think that could hinder your recovery in the long run? Would you find it triggering? I'm not trying to belittle your career choice because youre super caring and I can see you being a great therapist, i was just curious as to your thoughts on it?
I actually do, but I would also love to maybe work with kids who have lost parents. I think that if I am recovered and in a good place it wouldn’t hinder me. I have definitely thought about it before though. I obviously don’t want to be a hypocrite, so this is why it’s one of my motivations to recover. I can’t help anyone else if I can’t help myself.
Anonymous - Love you so much, Trine, and I'm so proud of you. Keep fighting. I believe in you. xx
I probably love you too <3 Thank you
