Stories from the Eating Disorder community

We are continually inspired by the powerful stories of individuals who have overcome eating disorders and of those who have chosen to join us in the fight against eating disorders. Although no two experiences are alike, it is our hope that you, our readers, may also find something here that inspires or speaks to you. Whether you struggle with an eating disorder personally or support someone with an eating disorder, you are not alone. 

 If you have a story you'd like to share, we invite you to contact us. Please not: not all stories that are submitted will be posted.

Eating disorders are mental illnesses and are often misunderstood. They are like a separate entity trying to convince you not to eat. Let's take the power away from the octopi and put it into your own hands.
