It has been a long while since I have written to you all. I have been spending most of my spare time writing articles and doing public speaking about food addiction and Binge Eating Disorder. I have spoken at conferences and vigils and really anywhere that people might want and need to hear about these mental illnesses.
On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, I preformed a monologue on the stage at the historical Capital Theater in downtown Wheeling, West Virginia as part of the cast of “This is My Brave,” an international program that raises awareness about mental illness. I chose to write and speak about my wins and losses with food addiction. I hope you will watch and share.
Recently, I started writing a novel in which the protagonist is a woman with Binge Eating Disorder. I am incredibly excited about this new project because I feel that it will be of interest to a wider audience that my memoir about living with BED. Imagine a book in which the main character is struggles with BED and goes through the recovery in ways similar to what we all experience, including more than one relapse.
In the coming weeks, I will be sharing excerpts of the novel with you as it evolves. I hope you will read along and share your thoughts with me.
