Behind My Smile: How I Recovered from Bulimia
by Lori Henry
Everything looked perfect from the outside: she had accomplished the things that were important to her – achieving honour roll grades, becoming a role model at her dance studio, and being popular in junior high. She excelled at tap dancing and was even allowed to go up on pointe shoes that year in ballet class, quite the feat for someone who never wanted to do pliés and jetés. It was all such a pretty picture for those who believed in her bubbly deception. Behind her smile, though, was a completely different image.
For those who are struggling with an eating disorder, the daunting task of recovery can seem out of reach and impossibly hopeless. The high prevalence of eating disorders and low support from society make it, not only frustrating, but life threatening to those trying to recover.
But it IS possible to recover.
Lori Henry knows that because she was bulimic for six years in high school and, now in her 30s, has been fully recovered for many years. This is a young woman's story of struggle and eventual recovery from bulimia, and how she lives without an eating disorder today.
