Basic info-

Name/SN: Sarah

Location: Canada

Age: 25

Child(ren): 3 boys aged 6,4 and 8 months

About your ED - I started starving myself at 15 but then I would have to eat in front of people so I used laxatives to get rid of what I ate and eventually started bingeing and purging after days of not eating

Type(s) of eating disorder: anorexia with some bullemic tendencies

Length (how long you have struggled with your ED): 10 years

Are you in Recovery?: Yes and no, it creeps up sometimes I can control it sometimes I can't. My family knows and are very supportive which helps.

How long in recovery (we all know its a lifetime struggle): It has been a year since it got bad again although I still have my days

Tools you have used in your recovery: mostly just the support of family and friends. My doctor threatened to hospitalize me when I was 17 and I just stopped going to see her.

Anything else you'd like to share with us?
