Rehab Truth: When You Terrified of Public Speaking But Agree To Be On A Panel

CSAB event

Eh okay- I kinda lied. I’m not THAT terrified of public speaking… but I am a lot better at expressing myself via the written word in my humble opinion.

Couldn’t help but see the flyer today and giggle to myself. Here I am going to be speaking beside Dietitians, Doctors,  and Entrepreneurs and all I got is “I Haven’t Shaved in Six Weeks.”

LOL- just makes me realize I’m luckier than I comprehend sometimes to have ANY opportunities to speak on eating disorders and recovery.

At the end of the day, I’m just another girl with an ED story to share.There are plenty of people like me out there who could probably do 10x the job I’m doing when talking about recovery and struggle, so it’s a nice reminder to look at that flyer and remember that 2 years ago I was also just another girl who wasn’t allowed to shave her legs for 6 weeks.

Thankful for everything in my life- every chance to talk about it, because it’s truly what keeps me in recovery (hence, the panel discussion topic!)

    1. Thank you so much for that- I hope so!!! I just want to be able to talk about it candidly enough so that I relate to other people and help others better understand what goes on in our heads (which as we all know, is hard to do!)

    1. Ah thank you for that- so true. Nervous bc of course it’s scary to anticipate how and what I’ll say. Just hoping I do justice to all of this crap we struggle with and don’t clam up like a turtle LOL.
