Hi. My name is Jonna and I have been in eating disorder recovery for over 20 years. My downward spiral with ED, aka eating disorder, started at the age of 15 with daily restricting. That was just the beginning of a full blown clinical eating disorder. I bounced from anorexia, bulimia, binging, and over-exercising, while counting calories hour-by-hour and weighing myself up to 20 times a day. It was beyond exhausting.
By the age of 19, my life was fully consumed by ED. I was a prisoner in my own flesh and subconsciously knew if I spent one more year in that cycle I would be dead. At the end of my freshman year of college, I emailed my parents about eating disorders, treatment facilities, and that their daughter had one. My journey in recovery started that summer. Into in-patient treatment I went.
I am here to share my story throughout my 20 year and counting recovery journey – my 30 day in/out-patient treatment at the age of 19, my relapse at the age of 24, my second 30 day in-patient treatment, and my years in full recovery since then. If I can go from contemplating suicide at the age of 15 to finding pure happiness in my soul, I truly believe that miracles are possible. I am here to share my journey and help others struggling in any way that I can.
This desire to helps others struggling with ED led me to build this website. It’s a place to share the modalities that worked for me and combined learnings?
