ED activist/sufferer/survivor Book Review
This is a book that I got in treatment. I have read it over and over... and over. And I still continue to read it when I need a little extra encouragement. My copy is highlighted, circled, underlined, written in with my own thoughts, certain pages are dog-eared... let's just say it's been used a lot! I have had the opportunity to meet the author, talk with her, & hear her inspiring words and music.
Her name is Jenni Schaefer. She is someone who I think is such a beautiful example of recovery and using her voice to raise awareness, to educate, & to support others who are struggling. The book is "Life Without ED" and if you haven't read it, I really encourage you to go out and get it today! She also has a second book that is just as good called "Goodbye ED, Hello Me." Which I also think you should go out and get! Her words are powerful, but they are also very relatable. I recommend this book to anyone struggling with an eating disorder.
