Diabetes, Eating Disorders and Depression

Thanks to Lee Ann Thill of The Butter Compartment blog who took the time to share her story with me of struggling with depression  and disordered eating for A Smart Women’s Guide to Diabetes. I think no matter how long we’ve been “healthy” or “recovered” from an eating disorder, or how long we’ve kept depression at bay through meds and counseling, it is always emotional to talk about these topics. I feel honored that so many women are willing to share these personal stories with me, and I feel a great responsibility to take care with transporting or translating the stories into the pages of my book.

I keep going back to the idea of sitting in a coffee shop with a group of friends sharing stories about living with diabetes. I know these stories of struggle and triumph will help other diabetic women out there, and that is what keeps me going…
