A new podcast is coming!
On September 1st the very first episode will be available here on this web site and at all of the usual podcast sources such as iTunes.
Anorexia, and other eating disorders, are greatly misunderstood. This is partially due to the fact that nobody likes to talk about them. There is still a lot of shame involved in mental disorders and that, honestly, is a shame. It makes you feel so alone.
Recovery Dad & Recovery Girl are just a dad and a daughter who made it through this. We realized that there are a lot of counterintuitive things about eating disorders that we wish we had known back when we first got the diagnosis. And we don't think there's anything shameful about having an ED. If you're anorexic it doesn't mean you're broken, and it doesn't mean you did something wrong. It's something that happened to you, like a broken arm.
When we looked around we didn't see a single podcast dedicated to the many families out there struggling with eating disorders, so we created one.
We're going to try, with the Recovery Dad and Recovery Girl podcast, and with this web site, to help families dealing with an ED to not feel shame and, most importantly, not feel alone. We hope you'll join us and together we'll fight eating disorders one bite at a time!
