It's been awhile since we last posted, but that's because we've been busy in the community, getting the word out and helping beautiful women however we can.
Having attended the last seminar session with UCSD's Eating Disorders Program, we learned that the DSM-V is coming out (that huge manual of every mental disorder currently diagnosed) to include many more types of eating disorders, including binge eating! That means that insurance companies will be increasingly likely to cover therapy for eating disorders. (If you'd like help with getting coverage for treatment, contact Lisa Kantor who's information appears on our Advocacy page.)
We're on a campaign to create awareness about eating disorders in the mainstream media and popular culture, so that more of our friends and family members understand the significance of the disease we're dealing with.
