Eating Disorders, Trauma, and C-PTSD: What’s the Connection?

Hi, my name is Leif E. Greenz and I’m a former anorexic. Today, I’ll be discussing the connections between eating disorders, trauma, and CPTSD. Thank you for coming on this long and intense journey with me.

Patronize me, captain!

In this video, I’ll be reading from one of my essays about eating disorders as well as from the book “When Food is Love” by Geneen Roth. I highly recommend all of her books to anyone seeking recovery and a deeper understanding of where eating disorders come from.

Have you ever suffered from an eating disorder? Do you believe it was/is connected to trauma? Why do you think that might or might not be?

I really appreciate you watching my video about how eating disorders are connected to trauma and (complex) C PTSD. I hope you enjoyed it.
