I might not be breaking any blogging records lately, but I've been concentrating on my art and freelance writing. This isn't my first major byline since parting ways with Latina (more on that in another blog post) but it's the first I've remembered to share here. I never was much of a blogger.
This piece on MarieClaire.com is a personal one and one I am proud to share. I've been "in recovery" for over a decade now, but I think that's a misleading statement when it comes to eating disorders. Alcoholics and drug addicts are clean and sober as long as they stay away from alcohol and drugs. But food? It's impossible for a binge-eater/bulimic to stay away from food, of course, which leaves it up to us to implement coping devices. Basically, need food to live, but food is our trigger, so we need to try to be stronger than our eating-disordered brains...every...single...day.
That's what this is about. If you can relate, or know someone who needs to read this, I'd love your thoughts. And thank you for reading.
