When Ruminating Becomes a Problem
Everyone ruminates. We especially ruminate when we’re stressed out. Maybe you’re ruminating about an upcoming test—you have to score an A to keep your scholarship. Maybe you’re ruminating about an upcoming presentation because you want to impress your boss. Maybe you’re ruminating about an upcoming date and the many ways it could go. Maybe you’re ruminating about a bad performance review. Maybe you’re ruminating about an injury that’s really been bothering you. “We are evolutionarily wired to obsess,” according to psychiatrist Britton Arey, M.D. We are wired to se...

Portrayals of Eating Disorders in the Media: To the Bone
I’d like to talk to you about To the Bone, a movie which was released on Netflix this July. To the Bone deals with eating disorders (“EDs”) and has caused quite a stir across social media ever since its trailer was released. Though I won’t go into much detail in this article, note that there will be a few spoilers ahead. You should also note that To the Bone contains potential triggers — as do the heated responses to it on the social media. So check in with yourself regularly, as I ended up needing to do, if you decide to watch the film and participate in those debates afterwards. To the Bone ...

Book Review: 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder Workbook
Our society continues to be obsessed with body image and body shaming.

Readers do not need to have a formal eating disorder diagnosis to benefit from the workbook. “Everyone’s journey of healing and recovery is unique,” write Co...

As An Eating Disorder Therapist, I’m Concerned About Netflix’s ‘To The Bone’
The trailer of Netflix’s upcoming movie, ‘To The Bone,’ opens with a plate of food and a young, frail, girl tallying up the calorie counts of each item. Her friend laughs and says, “it’s like you have calorie Asperger’s.” The movie, which was written and directed by Marti Noxon and stars Lilly Collins and Keanu Reeves depicts a young girl’s battle with anorexia. It has already been met with a lot of controversy, especially within the eating disorder recovery and treatment community. I think that the creation of this film was well-intentioned.

Your recovery from an eating disorder has been going strong. Perhaps you’ve been making strides in facing “fear foods,” are opening up in therapy, and learning how to use new coping strategies. Then, for some reason or another, you find out your current weight, which often causes “the eating disorder self” to start freaking out. Suddenly, you may find yourself faced with loud “eating disorder thoughts” and a desire to go back to your disordered behaviors. For some people with eating disorders, recovery can bring about body changes. Not everyone’s eating disorder causes weight...

During the process of my son’s recovery from his eating disorder I have received advice from many places. More often than not this advice was helpful and appreciated. Many people have shared with me their tips and creative strategies for managing eating disorders in their homes and many of them I utilized in our own home. There was, of course, that “advice” from friends or family members that was really not very helpful at all. That generally wasn’t advice though. That was usually a very ill-informed statement or comment that would sometimes make me wonder whether it was intended to be helpful at al...

It ’s Not About the Panini: A Story About OCD and Anorexia
18 years ago I found myself drawn to a light switch.

A similar undertaking occurred with door knobs. I felt the intense need to wrap my hands tightly around the knob, releasing it and then grasping it again. I did this until the tightness in my stomach dissolved, until I felt calm enough to walk away. Around the same time, intrusive thoughts infiltrated my mind. They b...
