I just turned 35 years old. I have had an eating disorder for as long as I can remember. I have been inpatient a few times. The first time I was 19 and living in Oklahoma, then when I was 28 in Mississippi, then on my 29th birthday went into a place in New Orleans. I am currently engaged for the first time ever. I want to look good on my wedding day.
