I've read quite a few recovery stories but would like an opinion from someone who has dug a little deeper than I have. How have most people recovered from this disorder? It seems like the most common answer is to not think about it and engage with life as much as possible. I've heard one person say he did intense cardio (3 hours a day for a week) and that cured him. Someone else said they cured themselves by fasting for a week straight. Can anyone recover if they distract themselves and engage with life despite how challenging it can be at times? How do you convince your brain that there's no threat and it can chill out?
