Pardon the language, BUT. I'm not scared to talk about my shitty experience with sexuality during my many years of disordered eating.
When Laura asked me to be part of this article, I said yes pretty much right away. Not because I relish sharing details of my sex life with the world or pissing off my exes, but because I think it is an important subject, and one that we really don't talk about.
Being able to talk about eating disorders has been huge for me, and I know that it has been helpful to readers. So I decided to be brave and to talk about a huge part of disordered eating that people really don't talk about--the effect on intimate relationships.
I hope that by sharing some of my story and getting vulnerable, it will be helpful to others and help them feel less alone.
