In this month's solo episode, we're talking about the most commonly googled phrase in the eating disorder field, 'Do I have an eating disorder?"
I wanted to make this episode because I know that when I was most struggling with my own eating disorder, I really didn't know how many of the things I was experiencing were actually symptoms of my disordered eating behaviors and thought patterns. My hope is that this episode opens the door for some of you listening to get curious about your own relationship with food, movement and your body so that you can start to get the support you need to heal and recover.
In the episode I outline some of the common behavioral symptoms as well as some physical symptoms. And I also share some resources for those who are listening and want to get the support.
Anthony Demario is a feeler, speaker, poet, radio dude and coffee lover on a mission to make a positive difference in peoples' lives through writing, personality and talks that are powerfully healing, energizing, and relatable. Anthony is also a proud advocate for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is a light in the dark for those struggling with anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts.
In this episode Anthony and I talk through his history with depression and anxiety, how he keeps up his emotional 'fitness,' being a 'feeler,' or highly sensitive, and the power of feeling all those icky feelings.
And of course we talked about body image, the movement mindset, and emotional eating.
