It's almost National Eating Disorder Awareness Week and I'm Getting Psyched!! (and busy)

National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAwareness Week) 2014 is almost upon us! The official dates are February 24 - March 2, and I've got a busy week lined up.

Expect timely blog posts right here, of course, and please mark your calendars to join me for the #AdiosED Twitter Party on Monday 2/24, from 8-9PM EST. I'll be joined by a panel of other activists and mental health professional who can answer your questions and help clarify common misconceptions around eating disorders. The other panel members are Brain Cuban (@briancuban), Melissa A. Fabello (@fyahmfabello), Anne Wennerstrand (@endgrdbodiesnyc) and Mae-Lynn Reyes Rodreguez (@MLReye_PR).

Finally, at the end of the week I'll be hopping on a plane to Tennessee, where I'll be giving a set of talks at UT Chattanooga on March 3rd. In addition to a luncheon and book club meeting where I'll discuss my book, Mirror, Mirror Off the Wall, I'm leading an event titled "Feel Good Naked with Kjerstin Gruys." Yeah - you read that title correctly. Grandma's Ruth and Rita, have no fear. I will be fully clothed, as will my audience.  I'll be talking about body image and body confidence. Can't wait!
Also, while we're on the topic of UT Chattanooga, I just found out that my fabulously brilliant sister-in-law, Mandy A., has been accepted into UTC's competitive veterinary residency program. Soooo.... GO MANDY and GO MOCS! That is all.

Oh wait, sorry: that's not all.

I never asked anything from him. I have no kids and a good well paying job. Everything was so perfect and good between us. He told me he would take me ring shopping and we would settle down and have a baby together. Everything was great. We met each other families and everyone told us we were perfect for each other.
