Dipti, I dealt with forty years of eating disorders. The day I knew I was on my way to healing myself is when I reconsidered a particularly horrifying moment through the eyes of my favorite comedian (Robin Williams). I laughed so hard I could barely breathe. THAT was freedom. THAT was the beginning of the end of it for me. Not long afterwards I walked away from them forever. On my own. Takes courage, Dipti. But I have learned to face off with my inner demons. They seem a great deal larger until you grab them by the canines and drag them into the light and laugh at them.
