Triggers are unique to each individual according to their lived experience. Please use self-care and stop reading  or watching anything that may be triggering to you. I encourage you to speak with your therapist if any uncomfortable feelings arise as a result of any information contained in the books listed below.

I had been in therapy for many years prior to the diagnosis of my eating disorder. This list is a compilation of books that have helped me before, during, and after the treatment of my eating disorder diagnosis.
