Who am I, you ask?

Good question! I guess the most pertinent information would be that I am an e.d. survivor. My e.d. developed at the age of 9, with compulsive overeating. That turned into anorexia at 15. Since that time, I have bounced back and forth between, anorexia, bulimia, ed-nos, and recovery. I’m now 26 and in recovery again. I’m determined to make it stick this time. I am in outpatient treatment at a small, non-profit treatment center that continually blows my mind and has shown me what eating disorder treatment can be. They have also given me hope that I am not a “chronic case.”

I am getting my Ph.D. in Women’s Studies and my Master’s in Clinical Social Work. I am considering specializing in eating disorder treatment in my clinical practice, though obviously this will only take place after a sustained recovery on my part. I have worked in e.d. education and advocacy for quite some time. I think I let this slip away when I entered graduate school, which was detrimental to my health. I’m coming back. This blog is one way of doing that.
