Why ‘I Haven’t Shaved In 6 Weeks‘? Well, it’s simple. I went to rehab in 2014 for an eating disorder, and there I was – 24 years old, freaking out, scared & resistant – so I got on ze’ old Google search: “Rehab experience” I typed.

GIVE ME SOMETHING, I begged. What’s it like? Who will be there? What’s the food going to be?

I was provided with a list of emotionless rehab blog posts, clinical articles, eating disorder ‘signs and symptoms,’ and inspirational quotes.

… Ugh. Not exactly what I wanted. I needed to know what the beds would be like. Who the patients were. What we’d be doing on an hourly basis. I ESPECIALLY wanted to know the food. If I ever get out of here, I thought. I will make sure people have a source.

Once in recovery, I chose to share nine stories (starting with Truth 1: Rehab Orientation) about my 6-week journey. Think of it as an ‘Orange is the New Black’ rehab edition.

I vowed to share the nitty gritty – including the fact that I couldn’t shave for 6 weeks due to the fear that patients will self-harm if given a razor. (WOULD’VE BEEN NICE TO HAVE KNOWN THAT PRIOR, I grumbled – handing my razor to the nurse.)

What spawned from those posts is this blog. And, oh yeah, a passion for transparency in the recovery community (no #motivationalmonday quotes, no bullshit). Just a raw experience of a girl managing an eating disorder.

You can find me blabbin’ about the recovery process on Today Show, Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health Magazine, Elite Daily, SheKnows.com, MindBodyGreen, Refinery29, Thought Catalog, The Fix, Greatist, HelloGiggles, and more!

Love hearing recovery perspectives from anyone and everyone. I may be a tad slow to respond at times, but I will always try to get back to you if you message me.

  1. I ended up here as a result of searching for the Lindsey 8 wheel lumber wagon ..which my ancestors invented. Anyway I found the topic of not shaving for 6 weeks amusing. I haven’t shaved in 36 years. I am known as Handlebar Henry.

  2. Lindsey you’re inspiring! I’m starting a blog about being a 46 year old ED recovery person….started at age 9! Thanks for sharing your authentic self! Not enough people like you out there!

  3. Orenda Wellness – I have a deeply hidden and inarticulate desire for something beyond the daily life. I love the smell of earth, the touch of waves, the taste of berries, the sight of trees, the sound of laughter and the feeling of being fully alive.
