Belle: The eating disorder voice inside
"I would like to believe that I am a strong woman. That I am strong enough to kick that f--ker's ass out of me" — Belle

- The persistence of depression and the fear Belle has of feeling that way again.
- How our struggles are untidy: Belle is fighting off depression, working to feel connected to her children and coping with an eating disorder all at the same time.
- How many women feel resentment and troubling thoughts toward their small children, especially in times when the child's needs are high.
- How EMDR works to get below the thinking brain.
