Eating disordered bloggers wanted for survey

posted in Eating Disorders |

Are you actively eating disordered or eating disordered recovered? Do you have a blog in which you address your struggles with an eating disorder? Then I want to hear from you.

I’m collecting anonymous data for a study on the role blogging plays in eating disorder recovery. I want to hear from any active blogger – male or female – who suffers from any eating disorder and who are in any stage of recovery. Because of the lack of eating disorder specialists and the high costs of health care, you need not have an “official” diagnosis of an eating disorder to participate, as long as you feel your relationship with food and weight is self-destructive and mentally and physically unhealthy.

This study is done in partnership with Dr. Susie Mendelsohn, a clinical psychological specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, for publication and research purposes. The survey consists of 40 questions and may take some time to complete, depending on how detailed you are in your answers. Your participation in this study would be immensely helpful in our research. Thank you in advance.

    I participated in the survey, but very few entries in my blog are actually focused on my disorder. If you decide to take a look, go to the tags on my left side and click the eating-disorder related ones.

    Thank you for posting a note to me on my blog! I would absolutely love to participate in your survey (big smile). My blog has to do with my eating disorder, but also self-injury. I am in recovery for my self-injury and I float in and out of recovery for my eating disorder — my blog illustrates both of these, along with the day-to-day ramblings of just trying to survive recovery. Recovery is so hard and waking up each day is a struggle, but I enjoy writing about my experiences and thank you so much for asking me to participate. Please let me know the results, if possible.

    Best of luck in your recovery Cassandra.

    does having a livejournal count in your definition of ‘blog’? i ask because you posted your request on there too…

  14. 14 On April 6th, 2008, Rachel said:

    Yes, I consider Livejournals to be blogs.

    Hi there, I have several blogs that I have kept over the years. I would love to be part of this study if you’re still doing this.
