Austin Redux

I have spent the last several days in Austin, Texas, attending the 2012 International Conference on Eating Disorders. I am still unpacking and sorting my thoughts and notes (yes, I am that kind of conference-goer), and I will have several blog posts with my thoughts later this week.

I can say that Laura gave a wonderful presentation about the language we use to describe eating disorders, and that I managed to ride a mechanical bull. Action shot below:

I also got to meet Lori, Cate, and more, along with reconnecting with Sarah Ravin, some FEAST parents, and other friends.

More details to follow.

Really interested in the language for describing eds- I'd love to hear more about that. Looking forward to hearing more. Welcome back! :)

I am definitely interested in learning more about this conference. Cute bull photograph!

I would have loved to ride the bull!!! Lori turned down my offer to race her to the top of the climbing wall :-D
And I did get myself a pair of coyboy boots on South Congress Ave - so perhaps I'll just tell everyone I went on the bull as well (LOL)
