Abstract:

"A searingly honest and affecting memoir of a bulimia survivor who found a path to recovery after experiencing 12 years of the worst, most traumatic aspects of an eating disorder. While on the surface a {u2018}perfect child{u2019}, beautiful and disciplined, underneath Luna Rioumina was a prisoner, and the captor was one whose name she never dared to mention. Her cycle of binging and purging consumed most of her days, and robbed her of her friends, her interests, and many of her youthful, carefree years. Luna pulled herself back from the brink of suicide to find her own solution to this perplexing disease. In an effort to free herself of bulimia, she committed herself to a psychiatric hospital, went to hypnotists, acupuncturists, Reiki masters and healers. In the end, none of these {u2018}cures{u2019} helped her. She was ultimately forced to develop her own recovery plan -{u00AD}- what she calls her seven steps to beat her own eating disorder. I Choose Life is much more than a memoir. Luna{u2019}s journey is one of deeply personal insights that ultimately led her to a practical approach to ridding herself of the illness. Now after three years of being free of bulimia, she is spending time counselling others who are still in the grips of this terrible disease, and passing on what she has learned. Based on the latest scientific research into eating disorders, this is an inspiring book. It provides a recovery plan for anyone suffering from or is affected by an eating disorder."--Womensbookshop.co.nz.
