I know its so hard to break the routine "safe foods" - but I found by just trying one new food each week it was amazing how my diet expanded - and nothing disastrous happened as a result - much to my surprise!!! So take a deep breath - take the plunge - and congratulate yourself for this huge step.

Hello, I empathise with your fear of trying new foods, it's nerve wracking stepping out of the comfort zone of the foods that feel safe. I ate a few vegetarian scotch eggs recently and it may sound silly, but it felt like such a big step 😊 Small steps can make it seem less intimidating 😊

Best wishes

that's amazing progress. I think the more I find acceptance in my true self the more the ed dissolves x
