I Finally Recovered From an Eating Disorder - And Now I Want to Do Better For My Daughters

By Robyn Cruze

National Recovery Advocate, Robyn Cruze, MA recently shared her thoughts on eating disorder recovery and parenting with Mom.Me. As a mother of two young girls, I naturally worry about every aspect of their lives, but I also understand that I cannot control everything they are exposed to. Our culture opens doors that shed light on unachievable body images, fad diets and multiple channels to criticize and feel bad about ourselves. For someone who found recovery from an eating disorder that crippled my spirit for over a decade, I am committed to being a positive example for my girls. I don't want them to fall under the spell of unattainable images media puts forth and our culture inspires. I am very passionate about my recovery journey and believe that identification is a powerful tool within the recovery process, and in rising above the illness. Read the article on Mom.Me.
