Almost "recovered"

I was diagnosed with anorexia three years ago. I´ve been going to the doctor since then and I´m supposed to be discharged next month. The problem is that I don´t feel recovered. I have had many relapses and tough I try hard not to have bad thoughts again I can´t avoid them. I feel powerless because after three years of hard work it seems like I haven´t learn anything of all this.
