Join Me For a Health Activist Chat- Eating Disorders and Chronic Illness

WEGO Health does weekly health activist chats on Tuesdays at 3pm EST. This week (tomorrow) I am honored to be guest hosting the topic of eating disorders brought on by a chronic illness. I know many of my IBD family can relate to eating struggles given the nature of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. I struggled for years (and still do) with balancing eating, nutrition, and my sanity. It is a daily struggle for me and until connecting with others, I felt very alone.

Chats take place on twitter and are for an hour. My twitter handle is @JournalingIBD and WEGO Health is @wegohealth.

I would love to have as many IBDers as possible in this chat so please email me ( if you have any questions prior to tomorrow.

    I missed your chat on Twitter, but I’d really, really be curious to read what was said. My blog is about eating disorders and their links to chronic pain, and I’m interested in hearing others’ experiences.

      Hi Ella! Unfortunately we don’t repost the chats because we want people to feel comfortable sharing sharing whatever they like. I would love to talk to you about your work in this area too. I think this topic needs to be explored so much further. Please feel free to email me if youd like to talk further. xoxo
