In Search of Personal Stories

We are in search of personal stories from individuals who have struggled with eating disorders. We are in the process of completing a workbook for individuals struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge eating. These personal stories will be featured as a special chapter of our book.

We are looking for individuals to share their story of what led to their eating disorder, and their recovery. We ask that these writings be no more than 1000 words. If you are interested in contributing, please send your stories to lau_mon@yahoo.com.

We are also in the process of collecting stories from loved one's as well...describing their experience of living with a loved one struggling with an eating disorder. This, too, should be no more than 1000 words, and emailed to the address above.

We are requesting that these stories be submitted by September 1, 1999. The date of publication for this book is 2000. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,
Laura Goodman, LMHC

Silverchair Frontman Reveals Battle with Anorexia

Daniel Johns has a secret he's only now telling -- and anyone's free to hear it. The Silverchair frontman has used his music, rather than the Ricki Lake show, to reveal his on-going battle with anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder that primarily affects women. "Ana's Song (Open Fire)," the new single from the trio's Neon Ballroom, is a frank assessment of Johns' life with the disease, an addiction to starvation that, he says, made him "eat what he needed...to stay awake."

"I've been told that it's when you feel like you've lost control of your life and you start really controlling anything you can control," says Johns, "and it just so happens to be the one thing no one can tell you what to do."
