Hi, my name is Brie and I'm recovering from an eating disorder......I officially restarted this journey two weeks ago.

This has been an ongoing cycle from eating well to not eating at all. I have probably had it since, I was in Highschool, but at that time I didn't see it that way. I thought an eating disorder meant that you didn't eat at all, but I didn't recognize that I actually had it until I came into adulthood. Actually many people knew about it before I did. It got to the point that my parents would ask me if I ate. Many times I would say yes, but I didn't tell them that I was restricting the amount. I have actually spent a few times eating my food under their surveillance. (I do not blame them as I would skip some meals if I wasn't supervised.)

My fears and stress got the best of me and unfortunately, I took it out on myself. In this episode -- I share with you a part of my story and where some of this came from.
