X-posted to mommies with eating disorders

So for the very first time every the topic of eating disorder was on the news here in Lubbock.

If you don't know a thing bout Lubbock this place is the most closed minded shelted place I've ever came across. If its not normal it doesn't exsist.

Anyway last night on the news they were speaking about eating disorders with one of my best friends, a woman I have been in recovery with! I'm just so excited this morning she foward me e-mails from people who have contacted her - we have a sponsor who will help us with forming a support group for Lubbock and West Texas!

It's also Eating Disorder Awareness Week. If you know someone who is struggling with an ED, there are many things you can do. If none from the link below, a hug helps too.

I'm so glad to hear that they did the special on it...I'm from a pretty small town in Texas too so I know what you mean about things like this being taboo...

According to Hays, eating disorders are about five times more prevalent than schizophrenia, but receive almost 30 times less research funding.

That is just...wow...really opens your eyes...

Hugs for you strong lady!!
