Eating Disorder Cycle

We were talking about the eating disorder cycle in group a while ago. One of the therapists drew a schematic on the board to illustrate what she was talking about. I thought it was helpful, so I replicated it. Did I do an awesome job, or what?

causes

This is based on CBT for eating disorders.

As you can see, once you get in the infinite loop of Thought (negative) -> Mood (negative) -> Behavior -> Thoughts etc., you are trapped. I liken it to a big vortex trying to suck me down.
