I’m Caroline, the newest member of GoodbyED! I was asked to join to add my perspective on disordered eating from my experience and hopefully be able to reach out to some of you.
My struggles began my freshman year of high school. I was attending a small private school that seemed (to me) to accept nothing short of perfection in every way. I had some hard times that year and long story short, I slowly fell into the chaos of EDNOS. I would stop eating for a month, drop weight, then binge for days and gain it all back or more. I would feel like a failure and as a result I would try to starve again. This cycle repeated itself over and over again for years. It took me a long time to admit to myself that what I was doing was NOT healthy and NOT normal.
It’s been about a year since I started my recovery and I can promise you all that while it is not easy, it IS WORTH IT! Life gets better and it does get easier. I can’t wait to start helping all of you!
Please do not be afraid to email me or ask me any questions! I joined this group of girls for a reason and that is to help every single one of you in any way I can!
I love you all so much already!
