Hey friends! I AM SO EXCITED about tonight’s post, because it’s something new, and…in the words of James Charles, “good and fresh!”
I love writing, but I also love talking and interacting with y’all — I mean, hello — reading and answering your comments is a highlight of my day!
So I thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions you asked over on Instagram in a fun little video!
And the REALLY EXCITING part, is that this is going to become a weekly installment over on Patreon!
By joining me, you’ll get access to these videos once a week, AND I’ll answer any questions you send in!
I think this is a highly valuable resource for anyone going through recovery, or who has a loved one battling an eating disorder, to be able to get first-hand information, from someone who’s been there and is on the other side.
No, I’m not a doctor, therapist, or dietician, but I am someone who has been to the depths and back again. And I think that’s really worth something. Much like my book, Bloom, these videos are something I wish I could have had access to when I was going through my disease.
But even if an eating disorder hasn’t touched your life, or a loved one’s life – these videos are a great way to just connect in a fun and more personal way, as the questions aren’t ALL recovery centered!
So comment below if there’s a question you’d like me to answer in next week’s video! And thanks to everyone who sent in questions! If I didn’t get to yours this week, I’ll answer it in an upcoming video!
This week’s questions:
1.) Do you still have bad days mentally dealing with ED, even though you’re recovered?
2) Do I ever miss my eating disorder?
3) Have you fallen from your faith at any time? How or who helped you stay close to God?
4) Advice on having boundaries with guys. — (I love this question!)
5) How did I get to where I could run a half marathon?
Alright, that’s it for tonight! Please let me know in the comments what you thought – if this is something you’d like to see more of – what other topics you’d like covered — I’M ALL EARS!! 🙂
I hope you have an amazing day! And when you read this…I’ll be out on a date!! Eek! WISH ME LUCK!
