GOOD MORNING SUNSHINES!! :)
Not really morning now, but it's looking pretty bright around here, because I'm launching "Munchkin Mail"!! :) <3
One of the things that I found was lacking when I struggled with anorexia was that although there were psychologists and doctors all around me, there wasn't truly anyone who could relate to me. Even the best doctor I knew could only nod sympathetically as I told her my worries and fears, and draw from experiences with past patients to help solve my problems.
Although I am not a psychologist or a professional in this field, I feel that I can offer something that contemporary medicine can't, and that's personal experience. I don't have scientific phrases to throw at you, only honest words that I can share regarding what I went through.
Everyone's demons are of a different kind, but relief from knowing that someone out there went through the same black hole and actually managed to crawl his or her way back out is universal.
So whether you're still going through an eating disorder right now, or know someone that is, or are simply curious about a certain aspect of this illness, please do send me an email. I will be posting my answers on the blog so that all readers can benefit from your questions, but if you have a personal question that you do not wish to see posted, please specify that in your email, and I would gladly accommodate that.
If any current warriors are reading this, please know that you are certainly not alone. It may seem like no one in this world understands you, but if you're reading this blog, you can count me as one who does!
An extra little note:
Although my chinese isn't too good, it's communicable, so if you feel more comfortable writing in Chinese, send it all the same, and I will attempt to use all my Chinese powers (or consult someone to help me translate if I feel that I cannot fully express myself) to answer your questions :)
Hello world! I'm Steph, and I am an aspiring clinical psychologist, avid advocate for eating disorder awareness, and bubbly human being :)
