LaurieAnn Campbell, award winning author, blogger, and podcaster shares her journey to overcoming her 30-year battle with bulimia nervosa.
According to research from Current Psychiatry Reports Eating disorders, which include bulimia, anorexia, binge-eating, are the most lethal mental health conditions. The Eating Disorders Coalition reports that every 62 minutes, at least one person loses their life as a direct result of an eating disorder.
Is recovery possible?
As regular listeners know, the Choose 2 Think Podcast we focus a lot on the BRAIN and nueroplasticity.
LaurieAnn emphasizes the importance of accepting the past and moving and looking forward in life. She encourages those who suffer disordered eating, food fixation, restrictive eating, etc., to face their emotions and feelings instead of run from them, to accept the past and live in the moment.
We also chat about toxic vocabulary that keeps us stuck in harmful habits.
Recovered now for ten years, LaurieAnn's mission is to help others, primarily midlife women, to find that peace. The unconditional love of her sister as well as her faith have proved pivotal aspects of her recovery journey.
