Yes most definitely. Eating disorders are NOT about how much you weigh. It is your thought patterns, behaviour, emotions etc that determine the ED.
No you are not better. It’s not about weight gain, it is about stopping or learning to stop the thoughts, repairing the mind and emotions. Stay in therapy. If you want to beat this, you have to be committed to your therapy and learn to use the tools they give you. Explore how or why the anorexia may have started. It is not helpful for those around you to assume because you are weight restored to be recovered. Ask for help. The thought patterns you are having is the anorexia trying to control you again, and relapse is a very real possibility. Don’t let go.
PS. you are right. Anorexia is exactly like an addiction. And like all addictions you can break ‘the habit’, you can rebuild your mind and life.
