Welcome to our page of recovery resources! Click on the subheadings under “recovery resources” to browse the different resources/categories we have found helpful. This is a running list and we will constantly be adding to it, but please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@thirdwheeled.com with suggestions to add! Additionally, if you have found a resource particularly helpful for the person with an eating disorder or their supporter, let us know! Sometimes resources are geared more towards one perspective and we think that information is very useful.

One last note: A friend of mine in recovery told me about a brilliant idea she did with her mom. She would read a recovery-related book, annotate it, and then share it with her mom. This gave them a wonderful platform off which to begin an effective conversation and if it feels right, use it!

Disclaimer: We are definitely not experts! We are just two women with two perspectives, who happen to be in a relationship, and who happen to have personal, intimate experience with an eating disorder. Our recoveries and our relationships with each other and with ourselves are a work in progress. Nothing and we repeat, nothing on this blog should replace treatment. If you think that you, or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, or any other kind of mental illness, please contact a professional in your area. We have listed a couple of national eating disorder associations on the Resources page of our blog.
