I’m Recovering Nomad (aka Helly Barnes), a woman with a history of an eating disorder and recovery as an adult.

This website contains my experiences of and thoughts on eating disorders, recovery, a bit of neuroscience and more.

I know what it is like to live with an eating disorder as an adult because I have been there.
I had a restrictive eating disorder with compulsive exercise for 13 years before embarking on this recovery journey.  
I was told I would never recover.
They were wrong!
