Book on Eating Disorders and Personal Experiences

I am trying to get a book together on peoples experiences of EDs. If you have a story you would like to share then please e mail me with it. I am a bulimic myself & want to do this book because in my experience I have yet to find a book on EDs that is purely from the point of view of the sufferer. I want to steer clear of psychological jargon & so would appreciate any info you could give me! It can be on any aspect of EDs, any type & also if you have any related issues.

Please send e-mail to:

Letters for Prevention

I am a recovering anorexic who has recently become dedicated to preventing the spread of eating disorders amongst people not formerly affected. I began by, after returning from an inpatient program, speaking to an assembly of younger girls at my school about my experience with anorexia nervosa and how it affected my life. But pretty soon I discovered that I did not think that that would be enough.

My idea grew out of a comment made to me by a friend who was also struggling with an eating disorder. She said that the educational programs designed to educate people on eating disorders had actually inspired her to go down that path. With that in mind, I thought of the Letters for Prevention program.

The purpose of Letters for Prevention is to have sufferers and former sufferers of eating disorders speak out and tell the REAL experience of having an eating disorder. These letters to young children, both girls and boys (because both are at risk of developing eating disorders) focus on the emotional hell of going through an eating disorder and the strength and courage it takes to recover/go through recovery. These letters will not focus on weight and will not explicity tell the amount of food consumed every day.

Please Visit the Letters for Prevention Website
for more information.

Looking for Feedback

I am about to start a nonprofit that will utilize young people to work on eating disorder issues in lots of different ways- one would be web site construction, training people in your school about the issue, lobbying congress for better health care, media campaign, etc.

I need input from people who have or are struggling with an eating disorder, what do you think about the name "Wearing Thin" for the organization's name? I was then going to have a weekly newsletter that would be called "The Skinny". Tell me what you think.
