Recovery from Anorexia is often a time of heightened anxiety and stress. Managing recovery while looking after a young family is a reality for many adult sufferers. In this podcast Tabitha talks to an adult in recovery, Erin, about managing recovery with young children.
I am 36, and have lived in Colorado my entire life. I currently live in Highlands Ranch and have two children, 11 and 6. I have been married for 15 years. I studied sociology, philosophy and women's studies in college. I have struggled with issues around food and body image since I was a preteen. My eating disorder became severe at the age of 33. I want to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and weights understand that they can indeed develop this illness and that it is a life threatening disorder that needs to be taken seriously. I hope my experience can help others know they are not alone if they are struggling to recover while also being a parent.
