Thank you so much for this book recommendation. I read the book "Unbearable Lightness" twice and loved the feeling of company. I was going to write to Ellen to look for the next steps or advice on how to overcome bulimia. I have struggled for over 20 years and I am dying inside from it. I have two boys 9 and 10 and I am a single parent. My younger son has autism and I'm struggling to support us and being sick with my disorder is holding me back so much from giving my children the best life they deserve. I am so grateful to have answers and help to hopefully heal because of Ellen's help. Thank you Ellen for your beautiful heart.
