Today my friends at Prairie Yogi published an article I wrote on my experience with disordered eating, specifically a condition called Anorexia Athletica.

The response has been overwhelming, and I'm told by one of the PY women that there has been over 3,000 page views since it was posted this morning. I've received countless messages of support, empathy, and even stories of similar struggles.

Though I am clearly very comfortable with my story- at least enough to publish the most intimate details- I didn't think that "coming forward" with my experience would affect me. I was wrong. It has been a profoundly humbling experience, and I am so very appreciative to everyone who has gone out of their way to support this type of dialogue by commenting on it, sharing it, and messaging me.
