Update: New Tech City’s “How Eating Disorders Evolved Online”

Posted by on May 20, 2015

If you’ve been with me since last summer, then you might remember a radio broadcast about the internet and eating disorders that I participated in last September. The other day, the host of that show (New Tech City on WNYC) contacted me to say that the story had done so well that they would be re-airing the story with an update!

I wanted to share a link to the updated story here with all of you. It was pretty exciting to be included in the story, especially because the New Tech City gang treated the topic so respectfully and thoughtfully. They were a team I could trust with my story.

Manoush Zomorodi, the show host, definitely had to reel it back in. But a lot has happened since September! I went back to treatment, then got cut off by my insurance company and argued my way back in, graduated from treatment, went on my first lobby day, then did a second and third lobby day, participated in a national march against eating disorders, came clean to more of my family members, crossed the one-year-recovery mark, celebrated my first wedding anniversary, adopted a puppy…

(Plus, if you give me a pen or put me in front of a computer screen and ask me to write something, I usually don’t know when to stop.)

WNYC-New-Tech-CityAnyway… the link! You’ll find the broadcast and a short post about the story here on the New Tech City site.

In the meantime, thank you, again, for being patient with me lately. I know I haven’t been writing as frequently. We are just coming off the busy season at work, and I’ve, admittedly, been struggling a bit on the eating disorder front. I’ll write more about that soon. Not to worry, though — just the normal ups and downs of recovery. I think…
