Who are the bloggers ?

Linda Lee Ross is a clinical social worker with twenty some precious years in mental health in British Columbia and Québec, in community, hospital and private settings.

Linda Lee loves working at the Eating Disorder Program at Douglas University Mental Health University Institute.

Florence Meney est journaliste et responsable des relations médias à l’Institut Douglas. Elle est aussi auteure et blogueuse. Florence a voulu partager son enthousiasme pour les gens qu’elle côtoie en racontant leur histoire.

My blog name is Carol. I had a lifelong eating disorder, unaware of it for over 4 decades. I would restrict, followed by binging…then would exercise and restrict once again as a form of purging which again led to binging further down the road.

My weight fluctuated up and down by about 10 – 20 lbs depending on which mode I was in… starvation or binge mode.

If you struggle with E.D, read on, as my story of recovery explores mostly about what goes on in the mind.

In art school, Esma is the name I used every time I wrote something autobiographical. Esma loves poetry, sports, music and animals.

Esma works at the Douglas but has a rap alter ego named “Buff Sketchy”.

Je m’appelle Ghislaine. Je suis participante au Centre Wellington et je fréquente aussi Les Impatients depuis 3 ans. Je m’occupe du centre de documentation et des café-rencontres au Centre. Je fais également partie de différents comités comme le comité changement et le comité Espac, qui réunit des usagers de différents groupes en santé mentale du Sud-Ouest dans le but de faire connaître les besoins des membres. Je suis heureuse de faire l’expérience du blogue et de partager mes idées avec les autres membres.

Mon nom de plume est BTC. Dans une vie antérieure j’étais anorexique et «cutter», et j’ai lutté contre la dépression pendant des années. Maintenant à l’age de 27 ans, je suis heureux et en bonne santé. J’ai complété ma maîtrise à l’Université McGill, et j’habite maintenant à Vancouver. À ce blogue, j’espère apporter la perspective d’un homme qui a vaincu l’anorexie et la dépression.

    Superb site you have here but I was wanting to know if you
    knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics
    discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!

    Great writing from Esma, dont look back too much sobriety is the best thing that ever happened to you. Whe all had fun drinking but fun is never going to come back. Try to have dry fun! Thanks!

      Merci, Bernard, pour tes mots sincères et encourageants. Je les apprécie beaucoup. J’avais le plaisir de voir ton témoignage au Bal. Tu es une personne inspirant! Continue tes belles initiatives dans la lutte contre le stigma !

    I would like to wish all the staff at the Douglas Eating Disorders centre a wonderful holiday and happy new year. most of all, I want to let you know that I haven’t binged for several weeks. You know how much I struggled! I suffered with bulimia and compulsive eating for close to forty years. Now I am healthier and happier than I have ever been and usually can handle life’s ups and downs without bingeing.
    I feel so happy and so free! I never thought I would be free of eating myself sick – but now I am.
    thanks you all so much, Miriam, Dorita, Mimi, Howard, Linda F, Linda Lee. Your compassion and professionalism are outstanding. Mimi, congratulations on your lifetime achievement award!
