February is Eating Disorder Awareness Month, so I thought I’d do a blog post about our personal experience with eating disorders. Then someone in my head told me that we’d already written at least one such post. I had to do a search, but I found it. I’m reposting the link to this ED post as my way of recognizing February’s cause.
P.S. We’ve lost nearly 25 pounds since that blog post was written. We’re hoping to lose even more…although we’ve been told we don’t need to. It’s difficult for me to perceive myself properly because I also suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (I see myself differently than the world around me sees). I am aware that I have an eating disorder; that doesn’t mean I can control it.
