Patient Voices: Eating Disorders

haven't had a chance to read this yet, but a co-worker pointed it out to me, and i immediately wanted to share it with you. a multimedia package on The New York Times website called Patient Voices: Eating Disorders featuring "eight men, women and children (who) tell of their struggles with anorexia, bulimia and other forms of eating disorders." there's also a discussion board if you wanna get in on the conversation.

click here to check it out.

i'd be interested to hear your thoughts. i'll let you know mine once i listen and read.

I was both inspired and dispirited by this. I think it's great to hear the voices behind disordered eating, and to see that this struggle crosses lines of age and gender. But it also serves as a reminder that the recovery process is lengthy and ambiguous.
