I'm posting a message I got from Doctor Trisha Gura on Myspace.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.trishagura.com/gura-truth.htm

My name is Trisha Gura, author of the May 2007 book "Lying in Weight: The Hidden Epidemic of Eating Disorders in Adult Women" (Harper Collins). "Lying in Weight" addresses the myth that adolescence is the only time of life when eating disorders occur. The truth is, eating problems in women older than 25 are now an epidemic.

Everyone knows someone who has suffered from an ED: a spouse, a sister, a friend, or a regular at the local gym - the woman who looks like you could break her in half as she works out for nearly four hours a day. Eating disorders do not strike teenagers alone, and they don't disappear - later life experiences like marriage, pregnancy, parenting, and even menopause can be triggers to binge eating, bulimia, anorexia or over-exercising.

If food and body issues have affected you or someone your love -- I can help.

Please help me spread the word about "Lying in Weight," adult eating disorders and healing by Adding Me as a Friend and by visiting my website to learn the 5 things you can say to an adult sufferer in order to start a healthy dialogue and to promote healing.

Sincerely,

Trisha Gura, Ph.D.

I'm really interested in her book. Being in the over 25 crowd, I have found few resources that are geared to me, rather than to youth.

I'm headed to he bookstore tonight.

I must admit, I rather disliked her book for this reason:
I felt like it said that full recovery was pretty much impossible and mythological...one could be in recovery but not recover...and I highly disagree...I just kept thinking...I will recover, damnit

I don't question the "fullness" of my recovery. As far as I'm concerned, I've made a complete break from it (if only by taking such a firm stance against going back to it).
