Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself :)

My name is Emma, I've been in recovery for eight years now and have been planning on and hoping to write about my experiences since for ever really. Reading other people's recovery stories has played a key part in my recovery and I hope to share my story too some day.

take care, Em

Some guy in Auckland wrote to me:

"Do male athletes get girls? Sure. And the girls do want to be seen with those athletes. They're trophy boyfriends."

Two new posts this week - on the frustrations around my eating disorder.

One is pretty snarky:  Why Don't I Just Eat,  and one is not so snarky:  I Can't See Me...

Hi everyone.  (How did I not know this group was here?) I just wanted to introduce myself.  As a former ballet dancer I suffered from anorexia, then transitioned to bulimia, which I lived with for many years.  Now recovered, and a therapist (but I deliberately don't treat eating disorders directly), and mom, I write fiction and blog about body image, recovery and identity.  (Sorry for the run-on).  Looking forward to connecting.
