The Mask

Dear Blog Readers,

This week I am thinking about how much pretending we do when we are in the midst of our ED thoughts and behaviours. It is incredibly exhausting to present one person and to feel like someone entirely different. I think that many of you will connect with the idea of wearing masks to hide our pain, judgement, shame, and suffering.

Take good care of yourself, and remember to nourish your body, mind, and spirit.

Your blog moderator,
