I’ve been a slacker on the blog this past month and some. Tis’ true.
I’d love to make 100 different excuses as to why (and will totally take this as an opp to shamelessly plug the fact that my partner and I are engaged as of a week ago!) but the truth is I have really just allowed myself to overextend commitments.
Whether it’s recovery meet n’ greet coffees or planning recovery speeches or my 9-5 job or traveling for my 9-5 (and recently for a recovery speech) I am at the point where I can no longer give a present (and meaningful) amount of time to any one email, Instagram direct message, or phone call.
Someone told me once that I needed to create boundaries in my advocacy work or I would get burned out and be of no help to anyone, least of all myself. I ignored this for another two years.
Of course I can, I told myself. I cherish ALL conversations and emails. (I do.)
But, it’s dawned on me since that that person had a point.
While I cherish all connection, I also cherish the privilege to show up and genuinely give my invested time, energy and presence.
I simply cannot do that in unstructured ways.
Over the last year, I have received daily emails that range in various needs: from assistance in finding local resources to treat eating disorders, to starting a personal recovery blog, to general recovery coaching, to parents asking about how to talk to their children.
Simply put, I want to help. I like to think that I’m the friend you never knew you wanted – and you’re likely the friend I didn’t know I needed. So, let’s talk.
I am not an clinician of eating disorders – but I write research articles with people who are. I am not a magical healer of eating disorders – but I know how to spot them, and get you headed in a better direction that whatever you’re doing now. I am not cured of eating disorders – but I have them, and I know how to live in spite of it.
In order to assist as many people as I can, my rates are negotiable in the hopes that those of you who cannot afford clinical help have other options. However, while negotiable, these rates must be adhered to so that I can help in a way that is the most invested use of both of our times.
