How do you ask for help when you don't feel worthy? It's an all too common dilemma for a person attempting to work through an eating disorder. Do you feel that no matter what you do, that you're still "not enough"? Do you watch yourself go through your day in an attempt to "not make waves" so that you can please others and avoid being judged by them only to end up negatively judging yourself? Going it alone isn't easy. When life is hard, it's nice to have a friendly face to turn to. Here, you'll have a safe place to leave your guarded secrets and relieve yourself of that burden.

So you have a new baby. And it's nothing like you thought it would be. The sleepless nights, the frustrations around breastfeeding, and the general feeling of loss of control are just getting to you. You haven't showered in days, don't feel like yourself anymore, and the thriving career woman you once were seems like a distant memory. You've read all of the parenting books, asked questions in the facebook mommy groups, and the advice that you keep on hearing just doesn't seem to work for you and your growing family. You are fighting with your spouse more than ever before. You are feeling helpless, hopeless, and overwhelmed.
