The story is always a variation on a theme.

P. S. Compulsive Eating Disorder, J, Age 54, Where Are You?

Compulsive Eating Disorder, J, Age 54, Where Are You?

Trying to find you You are a brave 54 year old woman suffering from compulsive eating. You wrote to me today for help. When I responded to your post, a firewall bounced my response to you back to me. I can't reach you. Perhaps we can find each other again via my blog. I will keep your identifying information removed from this post as I try to connect with you again.
