Starting With A Friend...

I created this group a little selfishly and then realized that it can help many more people than just myself.

In the picture for this group, that is myself, for an Eating Disorder awareness poster we made when I was diagnosed.

I was diagnosed with Anorexia 2 years ago when I was rushed to the hospital from a 45 minute seizure, and my heart stopped.

I died for 2 minutes when they brought me back to life. I feel as if I was given another chance to save myself and help others with this horrible illness.

If there is one thing I know, Recovery from Anorexia and Bulimia is extremely difficult and takes a lot of support from others because you are constantly battling with yourself.

I found finding support through family and friends was quite difficult in my area and situation.... I felt close to giving up on my recovery. Then I found this site and realized people are out to help and will help if you reach out.

I hope this group helps each of you find someone to confide in.

I wish you all a great recovery, and I'm here for you.

Recovery starts with a good listener and friend.
