This is a personal article I wrote for Project Heal, one of America’s largest platforms for eating disorder advocacy. I wanted to share a story about the importance of childhood trauma in impacting in mental health and dietary choices. I touch on my recovery from orthorexia to show how I navigated my own struggles. I hope this can inspire others to dive into the uncomfortable and explore emotions around mental illness and disorderly eating. By confronting these challenges, you can discover the strength you may have never known you had.
