Yes, I had one (maybe I still do if I am actively recovering from it?). My eating disorder manifested itself in different ways over the course of ten years, from dramatically undereating when my mom was dying of cancer to dramatically overeating when I was going through the stress of infertility and adoption.
After almost ten years of struggle, I went to counseling, and I am in a much better place now. I am still trying to process everything that I have learned along the way. As I continue figuring myself out, I'm sure I will blog about my discoveries (because that is what I do), so I will add to these links over the months and years. I will group these posts by the time period during which they were written and/or shared. Thank you so much for sharing my journey!
