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!)

I’m sure you will be great- good luck!
Thank you so much for all your support- you’re so lovely. Can’t tell you what your comments mean!
YGG! Let us know how it goes! And don’t sell yourself short. Your being on that stage gives a voice to so many of us that stay silent and anonymous.
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!)
Yay for you. Go get them you warrior. 👍
THANK YOU- you’re wonderful. <3
You will be great on this panel. I’m thrilled for you.
Lots Of love
Lindsey, This is awesome! Sounds like a really interesting panel and a great opportunity! Probably very scary/nerve-wrecking, but the more it scares us the more it helps us grow. 🙂
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.
