Anyone who lives with an eating disorder fights their own thoughts, their own anxieties, their own self, every second of every minute of every day. For Lizzie this was her reality from the age of 14. However through professional help, the support of her loving family, and her Christian faith, she somehow found the hope and strength to overcome.
Life Hurts tells Lizzie's story, reflecting on it from her perspective as a doctor. Her vision is to inspire and encourage other to see that, although eating disorders can be devastating, there is hope for all of us.

narcissistic and lacking insight, damaging
unfortunately for Elizabeth, having an eating disorder and a medical degree have made her believe she is an expert on anorexia. in reality she is in desperate need of some intensive therapy to challenge her punitiveness toward herself and others. her attitude is essentially "you just have to get on with it and eat", even though this obviously hasn't even worked for her. she's critical of people with anorexia (and to be honest, critical of most people). she thinks anyone who doesn't have a pathological schema of self sacrifice isn't as good as her and her mentally ill family. Also she's really pushing the "Christianity saved me" narrative, completely missing that the black and white punitive thinking is terrible for mental health. I really hope she gets some help for her self worth and punitive schema before she continues treating patients with this destructive set of beliefs
This is an inspirational story that is an "easy" read. It's reaffirming to both those struggling with anorexia and their family as to how difficult the struggle with this disorder can be.
