I'm new to the NAS community. Here's my hopefully not totally alienating introduction.I've committed myself to full recovery from Anorexia back in February 2019 and am happy to share that I have become active in eating disorder advocacy since last month, via Youtube. As an artist and polyglot, I try to view eating disorders through a multi-disciplinary and international lens. As a result, I've recently come across very new hypotheses that Asperger's could be a cause of Anorexia. Not that that may be news to you but perhaps there are ways my contribution in this field can be of use to you. Here's a link to a more wordy version of my thoughts on the subject for those interested. I hope it can prove to be of use and am looking forward to any questions or feedback that you may have. I am in the middle of a learning-process so the more comments, the better.
On the auto-biographical note, I will also leave you with my artist's website. http://www.laraverenabellenghi.com
Best wishes from Vienna, Lara
Hi Lara Verena Bellenghi
You're being a bit naughty, :) You're not allowed to post anything that identifies you. I personally dont mine, nor do I make or enforce the rules of this forumn.
You have an impressive CV !
But please stay around you'll learn alot here and people here will love your creativity.
What makes you think you are autistic ?
You should seriously think about doing a degree in psychology/ Msc in Autism. You would make a really good researcher. You present videos really well and the multilingual skills are an excellent way of reaching all corners.
What do others think ?
Lara, welcome to the forum. I am an autistic woman and had suffered from anorexia in my youth, Now my daughter also has an eating disorder so it is really helpful that you talk about it. I will get my daughter to listed to it.
