As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder for 10+ years, this is well worth reading.
I made a new zine recently, called “Anorexia Verbosa: a zine about my experience of an eating disorder”. I was diagnosed as anorexic about 12 years ago and have been in recovery since then; I wouldn’t say I’ve ever been “over” it but I haven’t reached the level of ill-health as I did at 17/18 years old.
I put off writing this zine for many reasons, which I talk about in the zine, but was encouraged to do it recently when thinking about a possible workshop on making zines about eating disorders to do with teens at a local school. I’ve included the edition of the zine that has resources included in it, resources based in “victoria b.c.” on Lekwungen, Esquimalt and WSANEC homelands:
