this seems so fitting for the Sunday Smorgasbord. i could hardly believe the weight loss blog generator title so i went there and got this title---Fatty Princess Melts---now in MY world this would equate to Anorexic Princess Dies. i'm seriously considering writing this woman but i have doubts it would matter. geez us!

Some of these articles are exactly what I need right now in terms of keeping my own recovery on track. Thanks for all your net trolling efforts! Much appreciated.

Thanks for finding these Carrie :)

In regard to the article in SA "New Genetics Findings Challenge Ideas About Mental Illness" - the most interesting component of that article is the discussion in the comments section - which broadly relates to the ethics and application of research findings.

I was turned off by the title of the qualitative paper "How to deal with sociocultural pressures in daily life..." but I was pleasantly surprised when I read the full paper. It's an interesting paper.

Finally, I actually enjoyed the "Weight-Loss Blog Title Generator". It made me laugh :D

Last Monday you posted a link to a survey. Can you post a bit about it - where did it come from? Will you have access to the results? When? Who will use the data and how? Thanks.

That weightloss blog generator was too funny. I am thinking of renaming myself "diva of booty" now!

Ooh, I am a bit stung by one of the points on PJ's blog post, which was that anyone saying they recovered without doctors should be avoided. I have a section on my blog which is actually named DIY recovery. It's not there to rub the fact that I recovered without the help of an ED in people's faces, it's because sometimes - for financial reasons, or because people live in remote areas, or because someone has been labelled chronic - people can't access the support they need, and I want them to know that the situation isn't hopeless if they can't get a good team. I would never advocate that someone do it alone if they have a choice in the matter, it's just unavoidable sometimes, not everyone is lucky enough to get good treatment. So I hope I'm not being judged there. Oh look at me, I'm actually shaking, I can't stand the idea that people are thinking bad things about me! Oversensitive much?

I was interested in the article on the link between earlier gut problems and mood disorders. I had an undiagnosed milk allergy which caused me a lot of pain as a baby, and the idea that this was the cause for my mental health issues has been floated by several different psychiatrists. Good stuff!

Katie said...

Oh for goodness sake. I meant to say "recovered without the help of an ED specialist". Ugh, my brain is just not working this evening!

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
