NOW IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE CHANGE

Hungry, lonely, desperate to stop the screaming in my mind. Craving numbness as to not feel the intense feelings that I was all to sure would consume me. I was going to crumble. The tears would not stop if I allowed myself to feel…I would be out of control. I could not let that happen. Stopping the wave of pain was all I cared about doing. Starving, purging, cutting…those were the only things that made the voices stop…if only for a moment, I felt relief. I was stuck in a cycle of numbing my pain - doing anything I could to avoid feeling it, and holding on to control as tightly as possible. But when I realized my needs to control were actually putting the lives of the little ones I cared about at risk, I knew things needed to change.

More than a decade later, I am not only comfortable discussing my journey, I am the CEO of Mary Rose NW Boutique, a body celebrating, size inclusive clothing boutique, an author, eating disorder awareness activist, and the founder of a nonprofit that funds treatment for eating disorders. I am Julie Allen and these are my stories

We have the opportunity to create change for our future generations by learning how to love and accept ourselves.
