Conquering my eating disorder

Adventure in Food: How I turned from Anorexia to Art

In 1974 "food is the enemy" was my mantra.  In true anorexic mode, I was starving. When I ended up in the hospital, crazy as a March hare, my doctor said: "Miss Goin, you can either eat or die." For several days, I pondered the thought.   Dying was not an option.  I was in my early thirties and there was lots to do and places to see.   But as a flight attendant, eating meals was a new experience.  My hours at work made regular eating difficult.
