screen-shot-2016-03-05-at-12-21-50-pmFrom around the world to home town, eating disorder activists and advocates are chirping and tweeting like a massive flock of beautiful birds. We are flexing our wings, beginning to venture forth from our nests. We are preparing to fly around our homes and around the world with the message that eating disorders are treatable illnesses and much, much more…and that we are determined to do something about achieving better care for everyone, on World Eating Disorders Day, June 2.

As someone who was a prisoner of an eating disorder for more than half my life, this is a great, great feeling!

Thank you to my hometown Geelong, Victoria for acknowledging the seriousness of eating disorders and giving the historic, inaugural event, World Eating Disorders Day a mention in this article Geelong column_May 2016.
Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening illnesses that affect people across the globe regardless of age, size, weight, ability, race/ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, documentation, and socioeconomic status.

Everybody can help. If you have not done so already, be sure to join me and thousands of others, in taking the pledge: Take the Pledge

About June Alexander

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!
