Excerpt: Believarexic by J.J. Johnson

Little sneak peek of a book that a lot of people expressed interest in when I shared it on instagram and in a book haul. This one's out very soon, so you'll be able to get your hands on it shortly, but until then, check out this excerpt and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Hope to see you next week for Tag Week. Thanks for watching!

In 1988, when she was fifteen, JJ Johnson was hospitalized for treatment of bulimarexia, a combination of bulimia and anorexia. During her ten-week stay, JJ had to eat everything on her tray, and took classes like "Assertiveness Training," "Depression Management," and "Body Image Workshop." She gained weight, but her path toward health was a constant struggle. In her heart, JJ knew-she knew-that she would be a happy, healthy adult one day.

But how? Instead of a clear path, there was a black abyss. She needed a guide, a mentor, someone who knew her inside and out.

So, one morning, just before weigh-in, JJ closed her eyes and made a deal with herself:

I promise myself that when I'm grown up, and happy, I will come back here, to these months. Healthy me will guide bulimarexic me through this.

This book is that promise, kept.
