Helping you stay one step ahead on your journey

  "You only have to be one step ahead to help the person behind you." 
Being anywhere on the 'recovery' continuum requires support, and a LOT of it! Resources can be hard to find. Finding support services that specialize in Eating Disorders is even harder. Sometimes there are so many hits on a Google search that you're not sure where to start clicking. You want an answer and you want it NOW! Been there, done that.

While this is by no means a 'catch all' page I want to share some resources I have found helpful as well as ones I come across as time goes on. Some are Facebook, others are web based, some are both. Take a look. Check out their sites. Contact them. Even if they can't help you they may have places to which they can refer.

Have you found a resource online somewhere?
Send it to me so I can look into posting it here for the benefit of others.

As I surf the internet and get involved in various communities from time to time I meet someone willing to share their story. If you are interested in sharing your story - no matter what point in your journey you find yourself - email me so we can chat.

Meet SARA.
I recently met Sara in the Facebook community page called Beating Eating Disorders. She posted her story there and graciously allowed me to share it here .
