A Letter to What I Can't Do Because of My Disabilities

Reading now: 565

Dear What I Can’t Do, I’m at a loss for what to do again. Once again, I find myself in eating disorder treatment feeling like staff don’t know how to treat the root cause of my problem – my relationship with my disabled body.

Time after time, I hear “don’t focus on what your body looks like, but what it can do for you.” But what happens next when I don’t like how my body functions either?

Society tells me to focus on what I can do vs. what I can’t do. But, this is invalidating because everything I can’t do is just as much a part of me as my arms and my legs.
