Websites/Blogs I love
Brian’s blog is a must! Author of Shattered Image, and also an outspoken lawyer and activist, Brian is a leader in the field of eating disorders from a male perspective, and body dysmorphic disorder, a subject that has not been brought to light until recently. When I read Shattered Image I identified with Brian’s warped perception and rituals surrounding his body. I think that Shattered Image is a book that every person should read as it allows us to understand that we are not alone even in our most secret struggles.
Shannon and I share a big love for animals, but Shannon has taken her passion to another level with her book Pound for Pound, SoulPaws blog, and workshops that teach people how the love of shelter dogs can help heal eating disorders and other mental health conditions.
