Reading what others have lived through can give everyone with tools they need on the path to recovery, as well as help others understand what people with EDs experience. It seems like we all know someone who has been affected — and as someone who has been through it, I know that being able to relate to others' experiences made me want to take the steps to work towards recovery when I was in denial.
