I am not fat.

Thanks to Jen for sending this my way, please watch Caroline Rothstein deliver her poem "I am not fat."

Her poem describes her personal journey with bulimia, a topic I have not written about much in the past, because I don't have personal experience with it. But as prettyshinythings told me…it's time to stretch my limits.

Take a deep breath, and have a listen;

    MAMAV, I love it! what a powerful role model…
    Thanks so much.
    Another thing that you could try and address on your site is amoherra (loss of peroids). Its a huge fear for people recovering, yet it is healthy and normal to be fertile.
    Thanks again
    Caitlin, aka prettyshinythings!
