"Day by day, meal by meal, millions of girls and women in the United States struggle with eating disorders. I am one of them."

Nadia grew up in a family where food was a commodity and self-control was the pinnacle of success. Nothing less that perfection would be accepted.

That's when Nadia met "Ed," her Eating Disorder. Ed helped her control life: he obsessively monitored her weight, created demanding exercise regimens, and taught her the exquisite joy of binging and purging to rid herself of the contamination of food... so why did she feel so out of control?

This is slender book is a story of hurt, loneliness, overwhelming odds, and ultimate recovery. Read this is if you need to be reminded that you can survive... and thrive.
