I am a woman that talks about everything, and when talking about it is not enough – I write books and blogs! One of the hardest things for me to talk about is not infertility, or sexuality – it is my relationship with food and my years of suffering with an eating disorder.
National Eating Disorder Week is almost upon us. It officially runs from February 26th through March 3rd. In recognition of NED Awareness, I would like to share with you a link to a recent interview that I did with “Getting Over ED (Eating Disorders) Summit”, about my own personal experience with eating disorders. You can jack into the audio interview for free here.
I think talking about eating disorders and their relationship to trying to conceive and our sexuality is incredibly important. I have heard from many of my fertility coaching clients that they are often asked by their fertility doctors to adjust their body weight. Whether it is to gain weight or lose weight – the request can set people over the edge. It can be the one thing that perhaps we can control, and feel the most out of control of.
The one thing we can do during National Eating Disorders Week is talk about it. And if it is time – come out.
