Older men/women with EDs needed

I'm looking to do a story on older (50+) men and women with eating disorders. You can be currently struggling or in recovery. You could have struggled since you were younger, you could have had a relapse, or you could have developed an ED for the first time. What's necessary is that you were suffering while you were over 50. This is for a US-based and distributed magazine, so Americans only, sorry.

If you fit the profile, know someone who does, or works with this population, please drop me an email at carrie@edbites.com I can't promise I'll interview you if you write (I'm doing background research at this point), but I appreciate all of your feedback.

Thanks!

There are several women with whom I correspond OFF of my blog who fit this description. I have emailed them all, directing them to this blog post. Hoping that your story is a success! :)

Best of luck Carrie! For once I can say I am too young! (And hopefully pretty much recovered!).

Thanks, Yoga! Much appreciated.

Ha ha...I'm about three years too young for this one! Good luck, and if I can think of anyone who meets this criteria, I will forward your information to them.

Aw shucks, the two of you are still spring chickens... ;)

I currently have a number of individuals that fit this description. If you'd like, email me a flier and I'll post it in my office for patients to respond to: eatwrite (at) comcast(dot)net.

PS:So sad the 50+ is referred to as "older"!

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.
