As someone who struggled with disordered eating issues, I wanted to create a blog devoted to overcoming this sickness and raising awareness of an often taboo subject. So in June 2008, I set out to do just that.
To understand how things got so out of hand for me, it’s important to know the background of my downward spiral into the world of disordered eating. I hope my candid story–now unmasked–will help jumpstart a dialogue for women around the world.
My story told in three parts.
Though I sometimes cringe reading what I wrote in that first year of blogging (and my mind set), I am not ashamed … it was my life, my reality … and, now, my history. I am happy to say that I have been recovered since March 2009 and could not have gotten there without the support of the blogging community (and of course my family and friends!)
My blog is taking on a new direction now, but everyone has a story and this one needed to be told … for better or for worse … so I could, indeed, get past it.
There IS hope!
Let there be light.
