Hey all you lovely people,
I've been haunting this site for a while now, but have been reluctant to really start contributing because I'm on the fence as far as recovery is concerned. Like you all know, this crap is such a challenge. Some days I can't think I can't live this way any more, and then other days I can't imagine existing any other way.
I've recently returned to college after a 4 year hiatus and am very, very glad to have a goal to focus on. I'm studying wellness and alternative medicine in hopes of perhaps becoming a naturopath someday!
Anyway, the reason I am writing this is because I'm taking a sociology class that focuses on sexuality and intimacy. I'm part of a group research project, and ironically enough, I got assigned to do research on eating disorders and sexuality. Hmmmm. So in addition to do the normal, predictable research, I thought I might reach out to this community since you all seem so open and supportive and ask for your help. I've come up with some general survey questions that I am hoping to get answered so that I might be able to identify patterns or trends.
Is there anyone here who would be willing to answer some questions for me? The questions are, well, about sex and about your eating disorder, but they aren't horribly personal, and if you want to participate but not answer all the questions, that's cool too! You can either respond to this post or just send me a private message and I'll let you know exactly what questions I have.
In advance, thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm really curious and excited about this project.
