Diagnosed with Type 1 in ‘91, Jenny developed an eating disorder late in the game in 2001 at the age of 27.
Her eating disorder wreaked havoc in her life intermittently for 15 years. During her last go around between 2014-2016, she decided that something needed to change before her kidneys took a shit, or her eyes followed suit.
Surfing Facebook one day, desperate for help, Jenny came across We Are Diabetes. Asha was just the person Jenny needed. She listened and understood the struggles unique to Type 1 and eating disorders.
Recovery was not pretty by any means, and there were MANY times Jenny was ready to throw in the towel. Thankfully, she was able to hang on by the tip of her fingers, and has been in solid recovery for over two years.
Jenny does not suffer fools, and has a strong bullshit meter. She spends her free time listening to the grumblings of her geriatric dog.
