I had a livejournal years ago but am happy to be back, determined to find support on my path to recovery, and help others struggling with the same diseases/addictions/traumas. I will post tonight on my page a summary of my first step so those of you who want to can get to know me a little better. Thank you all for being here and looking forward to sharing my experiences, struggles, strengths, and hopes.
new to livejournal
Hi, I am new to Livejournal. Im Devin a wife, mom, subsitute teacher, pagan and bulimic. I am not pro-ED, offer no tips or tricks or thinspo, just blogs about my ED and pics of me and my animals. Ive struggled for over 4 and a half years since relapsing. I was triggered into relapse when I reached a high weight of 225 after having a baby. I am at a low weight now, that has varied throughout the whole time of relapse. I do think my high weight caused my ED to go where it had never gone before. I am trying to do something about the ED but I am very confused about it at the same time. I dont like doing what I do but its hard to walk away from because of the fear of seeing that high weight again, the image of me at that weight still haunts me to this day. I do believe that ED comes in all shapes and sizes, and do not wish for the ones who disagree to add me because I feel that they would not have added me if I was at a previous weight. I am trying to do something about my ED, I cannot afford insurance for any intensive treatment, so i have no choice to do what I can on my own and seeing individual therapists who work on a sliding scale. I am looking for a local support group but our are has a lack of support for eating disorders. The web communities are my main resource for that at this time.
Eating disorder bloggers wanted for survey
I am a current graduate student researching the social history of food-related disorders, inspired, in large part, from my own struggles with anorexia and bulimia. I'm conducting an anonymous survey of bloggers who blog about eating disorders or eating disorder recovery in partnership with a clinical psychologist for joint research and publication purposes.
I'm hoping our survey generates lots of responses so that our findings are well-rounded, inclusive and convincing. The only two requirements are that you must have an active blog and that it must address, at least in part, your experiences with an eating disorder. I'm hoping for responses from people of all ages and genders who are in all stages of recovery and who suffer from a diversity of eating disorders, from anorexia to binge eating disorder to ed-nos to orthorexia.
If the scope of the study pertains to your own experiences, I invite you to participate by taking it. More information and a survey link can be found here
