Callie is bold. She is also healed and inspired to help others kick the shit out of this disease, just as she did. She is you and she is also me.
Callie is the name I published under as she was brave and bold enough to tell this story, to put it out there to reach and impact others. While I was not ready to become—to the rest of my professional and public world—the new face of bulimia, Callie was. And I will be forever grateful.
She truly feels like a person of my past. Someone I abused and tormented for years, but she, being me, is also strong and resilient and has forgiven me.
I hope her story will empower you. If so, please share it. And please let Callie know.
