Health knowledge made personal
I consider myself a former purging-type anoretic but don't see myself as recovered. Recovering? Yeah, probably, but sometimes I wonder. It's a tough road. It's even tougher knowing where you stand.
I came up with the idea for Disordered Times by looking at other blogs out there and realizing that they (roughly) fit into two categories: written by people in recovery or written by the pro-ana crowd. I thought, "What about everyone else in between? There's tons of us!" So I started Disordered Times with the intent of including news about eating disorders and combining it with the perspective of someone who has or has had an eating disorder. No one was doing this when I founded Disordered Times in December 2006, so I'm really proud of coming up with the idea and the people who have generously contributed their thoughts and writings to the site. I am grateful to each and every one of you.
Disordered Times is a group blog, meaning that if you would like to contribute to the site, you are welcome to submit. See the "Want to write for Disordered Times" link on the main page for more information.
