Eating disorder recovery is a subject that is close to my heart, given my past experience with it. Christie Dondero Bettwy is the Executive Director of Rock Recovery, a Christian organization that helps men and women find freedom from eating disorders for a lifetime.
I’ve been a supporter of Rock Recovery for many years, because I know how important it is to find freedom from an eating disorder. I lived with one for over 10 years and never want anyone to feel like they can’t overcome.
In this conversation, Christie and I talk about our respective journeys, how to get help, how to think about parenting in regards to EDs and the financial burden of treatment (it’s a lot!), which is why organizations like Rock are such and important resource — they have a sliding scale payment system and no one will be turned away.
If you or a loved one are struggling with an eating disorder, you are not alone. There is hope for freedom in the future and I am living proof.
