you're wondering who ned is.
i don't blame you.
ned is my name for my nasty little eating disorder.
i was diagnosed about two and half years ago with non-purging bulimia, after struggling with little or no help for two years.
so now its been close to five years and i finally feel like the story of ned is...well, it's not ending so much as, just becoming less important.
i made the decision to speak openly about my eating disorder because one of the reasons it was so difficult to find someone to help me was that so little is known (even among medical professionals) regarding eating disorders.
if you think you might be dealing with your own ned, i can't emphasize the importance of seeking help. and i'm not talking about your general practitioner or even a run-of-the-mill therapist. look for someone who specializes in this field.
with any questions or comments, don't hesitate to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
so here's the story from the beginning:
