In the greatest depths of my body issues, I refused to sleep with anyone who wasn’t at least somewhat overweight.
Is it the responsibility of doctors to watch their words to avoid upsetting patients? Or is their job simply to identify and communicate “facts” truthfully?
It wasn’t until months after I left OA that I finally challenged the validity and utility of my “Eating Disorder” label. Is identifying myself as an “Eating Disordered” person for the rest of my life really serving me?
