I'm trying to finish up this book manuscript on the science of anorexia, and I'm coming to a bit of a sticking point. What I want to know from those of you who consider yourselves in recovery (or for parents of children who are in recovery) is this:
How do you define eating disorder recovery?
If you're not in recovery, I'd still love to hear what you have to say and what you think, just please let me know how you feel your recovery is going.
If you'd rather not share on a public blog, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any quotes from your comments may be used in the book, but I'm going to do so anonymously, so you can feel free to be honest.

Drop me a line!
