Hope for Recovery: Stories of Healing from Eating Disorders
by Christina Tinker (Editor), Catherine Brown (Editor)
Co-editors Catherine Brown, a writer, and Christina Tinker, corporate storyteller and courage cultivator, are among the many adults who have recovered from eating disorders. To help others who struggle, they have co-edited and contributed to a compilation of essays by women and men who have recovered from eating disorders sometimes after many years of not believing recovery was possible, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder.
The book’s diverse essays emphasize each writer’s journey to recovery, providing hope for individuals suffering with an eating disorder and their loved ones. In addition to these highly personal, vulnerable essays, the book includes informative sections with insights from mental health professionals on topics such as how families can help loved ones affected by eating disorders and males with eating disorders.
There is a very poignant quote from Catherine Brown in the introduction:
“I finally have reached a point where most of the time I feel fine – and even good – about who I am. I finally feel like I’m enough”
