Josie, Joey, whatever her name, we love you!

There’s a regular here named Josie, sometimes Joey, many of you know and love her as I do.

She has created an awesome recovery site that I would like to recommend to you, let’s call it Josie’s Home. This girl has got a great head on her shoulders, so read her words of wisdom.

Next up, college! Three days away and time is ticking. This means a whole new phase of life, so please wish Josie the best of luck in her new adventure.

Then there is Prime, her boyfriend. This guy is one of the only, brave, male souls who shows his face around here. Gotta love him.

And finally, and most importantly, Josie has won her struggle with depression.  She has officially recovered.

Wow! What a year.

I wish the best for you Josie, there’s no stopping you now.

    congratulations and good luck at school, Josie! definitely liked the site a lot, i’ll probably check it out even more then next time i’m feeling nostalgic for recovery.

    btw to all you critical thinkers, i put a new blog up this morning dealing with the whole issue of whether or not informing more parents about proana will do anything helpful. i say “no!” is anyone surprised?

    Hi my friend: I thought I would tell the story of our beginnings….Josie and I didn’t exactly get along. Is that accurate?

    Actually we were like polar opposites, but we listened to each other, respected each other, and agree to disagree to this day.

    What a wonderful friendship. It’s not always about seeing eye to eye, and if you open yourself up to differing opinions, you just might learn something.

    I, for one, have learned a heck of a lot from you Josie. I am thankful to have you in my life.

    Josie, you are an inspiration!!!!!!
    I’ve read your site, and I’m more determined to recover. Really helped motivate me + your kindness comes from a beautiful heart.

    luv Kris!!

    “didn’t exactly get along” … no i was furious!! Hahahaaa
    …and i still like disagreeing with you now, because i know you can take criticism without taking it personally, which is awesome.

    I feel kindof…honoured… i guess is the word, that you learnt a lot from me. Doesn’t happen much with 19-year-olds.
