When I bought this guitar, I was at the height of my battle with anorexia and bulimia. I didn’t have the energy to push down the strings or to concentrate.

So, I actually took the guitar and I shoved it in the back of my closet. Well, ten years later, I’m recovered. And the guitar is out of the closet. I’m learning how to play, and I’m finding that it’s actually really fun.

What is your guitar in life?

What is it that’s in the back of your closet that you need to take out, something that your eating disorder has taken from you? Is it going back to school? Is it starting a new hobby?

I encourage you to take out your guitar, whatever it may be, because we recover from our eating disorders in order to recover ourselves. And, after we recover, we can do anything at all.
