I wrote this poem when I realized what the eating disorder was doing to me — and what it had taken from me — even though I still felt so "attracted" to it at times. The eating disorder was taking my life from me and I am no longer going to allow that to happen.

At 19 years old, I chose to withdraw from college in order to regain control of my thoughts and behaviors. I never would have been able to face my anorexia without the scholarship I received from the Eating Recovery Foundation. This scholarship was what I needed to be able to get the treatment I needed. I was given the extra strength I needed to enter treatment, even after a relapse, and to fight feverishly throughout to be where I am now.

There are many great conferences in the eating disorder field, and I’m frequently asked, “Why should I spend time away from my private practice, and make the financial investment to attend your conference?” I know you may think I’m a little biased, but when you read what conference attendees have to say, you’ll see there are many reasons why you should attend.
