As a diary-keeper and a member of the international eating disorder community I welcome this exploration of writing, especially for communicating with our own selves as a life skill as well as a therapeutic one. Writing is the slowing down and careful observation of our thinking: the content and the process. Through our diaries we become literate in our own consciousness and our unique selves. Thank you to June Alexander and The Diary Healer project!
