Help researchers understand ED recovery process – share your story in survey

Kelly Romano

Through collaboration, solutions will be found to the eating disorder mystery. We can all help. Including you. Your experience counts! In many, many important ways. For instance, Kelly Romano, a student in Florida State University’s Mental Health Counseling M.S./Ed.S program, is completing a masters-level thesis on the eating disorder recovery process and seeks your help.
By participating in this survey, that Kelly has created, the information you provide will be used to gain a better understanding of the recovery process and help to create new treatment interventions.

Kelly explains:

The goal in learning about the recovery process is to better meet the needs of people who are either currently struggling with an eating disorder or have been diagnosed with this condition in the past.

To complete this survey you need to be 18 or older, do not have a legal guardian, and have been diagnosed with an eating disorder at any point in your life by a qualified professional (e.g., a medical doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, or a licensed therapist, counselor, or social worker). All responses are anonymous: the information that you provide is confidential and NO identifying information will be recorded. Click here.

As founder of Life Stories Diary my prime motivation is to connect with people who want to share their story. Why? Because your story is important. My goal with this blog is to provide a platform for you to share your story with others. Building on the accomplishments of The Diary Healer the Life Stories Diary blog will continue to be a voice for people who have experienced an eating disorder, trauma or other mental health challenge, and provide inspiration through the narrative, to live a full and meaningful life.

My nine books about eating disorders focus on learning through story-sharing. Prior to writing books, which include my memoir, I had a long career in print journalism. In 2017, I graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Writing), researching the usefulness of journaling and writing when recovering from an eating disorder or other traumatic experience.
Today I combine my writing expertise with life experience to help others self-heal. Clients receive mentoring in narrative techniques and guidance in memoir-writing. I also share my editing expertise with people who are writing their story and wish to prepare it to publication standard. I encourage everyone to write their story. Your story counts!
