About Me

My name is Claire, I’m a biochemistry & French major at university, and an eating disorder sufferer. I created this blog at the beginning of my sophomore year in high school after struggling with anorexia nervosa since the age of 8. The goal of this blog is to destroy myths and misconceptions about eating disorders, help people see what it is truly like to manage my life with this potentially life-threatening illness each day, and to encourage fellow eating disorder sufferers to get the ย help the not only disease but deserve.

I am proud to say that this blog made it on the list of Healthline’s Best Eating Disorder Blogs 2017! I can’t thank my readers enough for all their support and encouragement which helped make this possible.

      1. I really and truly love your blog. It helps to know that I’m not alone, but hurts to see you struggling. This “award” is actually more like a chain letterโ€”the details of it really confuse meโ€”but I wanted to thank you for staying strong and for the work you’re doing toward helping others, just by getting your story out there and encouraging others to seek help.

        You’re very welcome for the nomination, and thank you for continuing to share your story ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you for sharing your blog! I will be sure to read your posts ๐Ÿ™‚
      I am sorry to hear you are struggling with this terrible disease as well. If someone has a physical neurological illness, such as a brain tumor or MS, family and friends are incredibly empathetic and supportive. When you have an eating disorder though, everyone seems to view it as a choice and because of that, those of us with eating disorders are usually left to fend for ourselves.
      It’s a very hard illness, but please feel free to email me by clicking the “CONTACT ME” tab on my blog. I’ll get back to you ASAP ๐Ÿ™‚
