Dispelling Anorexia Myths: Wendy R. Levine Shares Her Journey on Mental Health News Radio

I'm not the house of cards that falls down easily... it can go on over the course of someone's lifetime, meaning their teens, their 20s, their 30s, their 50s, their 80s, anorexia- well, any kind of an eating disorder other than overeating that one's okay to talk about when you're older, but things like anorexia and bulimia and so on, those are things that people think of as a young person's disorder. I'm going to call it an addiction, because it really is an addiction, in my opinion.
Wendy R. Levine, a magna cum laude graduate from the State University of New York, joins Kristin Sunanta Walker on Mental Health News Radio to dispel some of the attitudes and beliefs about Anorexia Nervosa. In this episode, Wendy shares her journey and reflections on her recovery journey. She emphasizes that Anorexia is not just a 'young person's disorder' but can affect anyone regardless of age.

Wendy's story is inspiring and informative for anyone who has experienced or knows someone who has gone through an eating disorder or addiction. Her story serves as a reminder that recovery is possible and that we should never give up on ourselves or our loved ones.
