    Wow, it makes me feel kind of weird that there are so many mediocre reviews of this book, when I got so completely sucked into it and read it in one morning I mean, last night I played a show with my band at a converted biscuit factory, out in East Oakland, with two other bands and a fashion show It was kind of emotionally draining because there was drama and THEN there was tons of traffic on route 80 so I didn t get home til li

    This is a fantastic, realistic, no sugar coating exploration of a young woman diagnosed with EDNOS who spends three months in a residential inpatient program in Wisconsin I ve read a few memoirs like this one and have never felt connected to a writer the way I have to Nicole, probably because we re close to the same age and are both perfectionistic nutbags who used school and academic life as a way to check out of real life, WHAT


  3. says:

    Quite good, and it s refreshing to read a book on eating disorders that focuses on the struggles of recovery, as opposed to the years of disordered behavior For an example of the latter, read Wasted by Marya Hornbacher Like many other of this type, it s a veritable how to manual for anorexia and bulimia Covering her inpatient stay for EDNOS, Johns presents her own view of recovery, including those there with you who fall by the ways


  4. says:

    i think this is the best and smartest ED memoir i ve read it is not as self focused as hornbacher s Wasted possbily because it focuses not on every possible interpretation and aspect of her disorder s , and instead focuses on a finite time and place during her treatment in an eating disorder clinic thus, johns gives us a larger cast of characters and presents a community of frail bodies working through multiple issues, not just one pa

    This is a memoir of the author s 2 months in treatment for Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified EDNOS It s a very fast read, and pretty interesting The tone and point of view are really slippery, and not necessarily in a calculated way She veers between nostalgia for her friends, disdain or distrust of her doctors, and a sort of mature or recovered voice But what I liked about is that she does give the reader a chance to see inside


  6. says:

    Absolutely a must read for anyone in the field of eating disorder treatment, or for those who have a friend or family member who has struggled with an eating disorder Johns offers a rare insight into what helped, and what didn t, as she progressed through treatment She also describes her eating disorder in a way that helps the reader understand that it s not just ignorance or a simple, curable thought pattern.


  7. says:

    Memoirs are not usually that interesting to me I find that they sound like they re airing baggage They also usually lack craft or innovation And no matter how much the author may confess to explore their own faults or wrongdoings, there is usually a tone of arrogance or self righteousness See Dharma Punx, which explores two unlikely linked subjects I am interested in Buddhism and punk rock Johns Purge Rehab Diaries is a refreshing exception


  8. says:

    In my opinion this is the best book about eating disorders out there I read it every time I start to feel pressure to lose weight, look better, thinner, or when I start to hate my body It s a great book to ground you into the realities of an eating disorder and show the negative side effects without glossing over any uncomfortable subjects Rather than acting on any of my anxiety or eating disorder urges, I sit, and calmly read this book until

    The recovery doesn t always work concept is something I ve been looking for in an ED book for a while, but now that I ve found it I m discovering that it doesn t make for a very strong ending.It s an I worked hard but then it failed, I think about how we got here, The End, type thing.I found the writing clunky, the use of tenses annoying, and the story not particularly interesting original valuable I suspect that part of the problem was that it

    This definitely earned props for me for being an ED book about someone who struggles with bulimic tendencies it seems like there are a lot of memoirs and novels focusing on anorexia and seeing a narrative of someone with EDNOS was refreshing But I did not love it The pacing and structure wasn t my cup of tea modeled MUCH like Girl, Interrupted it was vaguely chronological but also had short descriptive chapters not specifically part of the timeli
