I created this blog to help myself and others who are afflicted with this sickness, and to raise awareness of an often taboo subject. In time, it morphed from Tales of a Disordered Eater to Tales of a (Recovering) Disordered Eater to Tales of a Recovered Disordered Eater.
Now … it’s Let There Be Light. Because in this moment, THAT’s what defines me. My past isn’t something I wish to erase … but it is just that — the past. I’ve been fully recovered since March 2009.
On a personal level, I’ve been happily married to my college sweetie since 11/18/2006. I am a PR professional, a mom (our sweet Maya was born December 18, 2010 and beautiful Benjamin was born October 3, 2013), and I currently live in Michigan — though home is also DC (where I went to school and grad school) and NJ (where I grew up).
I’m an idealist. I believe love conquers all. And I love long walks and cafes, traveling, good dark chocolate, running outside and pondering the intricacies of life. I am obsessed with politics, Sex and the City, tall boots, fall, NJ pizza and bagels, Lancome Juicy Tubes lip gloss and (don’t laugh) my Crockpot. I speak Spanish. And I have lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and San Salvador, El Salvador.
I’m Type-A all the way, have total first-born tendencies and am a control freak. My mom once sent me the book, Performance Addiction. Enough said!
I believe in my heart that life is meant to be lived … and that my disordered eating issues hindered my ability to do that, rendering me inflexible and rigid; anxious and tense. But I had faith and hope that, in time, I would overcome these demons and live the happy, healthy live I strove to attain. And I’m there. I’m SO there.
