I could not find any male influencers sharing their recovery stories, and I could not even find non-profits or websites with resources for men. I turned to my RD and therapist for help finding resources for men, and they also came up short. If I did not have the two of them to continually validate my experience, I might have just given up.
In December 2020, I decided to become the male eating disorder recovery advocate I needed, using TikTok and, later, Instagram as my mediums. My platform grew very large very quickly because there was and is an immense need for male recovery representation.
Please join me in my mission to normalize and de-stigmatize the male eating disorder recovery experience!
