Jason’s Story – Battling Orthorexia & Depression

My name is Jason Wood, I live in the state of Colorado with my husband and our rescue pups, Arnie and Walter.

In addition to being an avid sports fan and event coordinator, I also have a real passion for writing. My battle with orthorexia and passion for helping others left me a man on a mission, which is why I launched my blog orthorexiabites.com.

My therapist suggested I write my story and documented my journey from losing my parents at a young age to losing touch with my siblings, and eventually facing eviction and an eating disorder.

While reading the story back to myself, I was able to see myself from an objective point of view, which allowed me to gain self-compassion and love myself for the first time in decades. I felt the boulder of pain and turmoil crumble away with each sentence I read.

My recovery mantra is to trust the process, embrace the process and eventually enjoy the process. Recognizing that recovery is a process, makes the bad days less bad and the good days even more enjoyable.
