    Eating Disorders: Answering The Questions You're Too Afraid To Ask!

    Eating Disorders: Answering The Questions You're Too Afraid To Ask!

    In this weeks candid, unfiltered solocast, I get real about all things "taboo". I encouraged you to ask me what you would ask an individual with an eating disorder if no question or subject was off limits. I promised to both keep your questions anonymous and approach them without a sceric of judgment. Here are my answers!

    Be prepared to get REAL. I discuss everything from stereotypes, to bowel movements, sex drive, periods, embarrassing experiences and common misconceptions, all in an attempt to dismantle shame and empower conversation.
