EXERCISE ADDICTION AND EATING DISORDERS….LETS GET PHYSICAL

I remember my alarm clock going off at 3 in the morning. I would get the sickest feeling in my stomach as I knew as tired as I felt I had to get up. The coldness from the winter air would hit my skin. I would stumble around in the dark looking for the light, […]
