Show #4 Overdose Suicide Attempts/Eating Disorder
(postponed from August 31 due to technical difficulties)
Milena is a beautiful young woman with a powerful story to tell. From living in an orphanage to adoring a loving grandmother to life falling apart after her grandmother’s death, Milena’s difficulties triggered an underlying disease of depression. Her life has followed a path of self-harming behaviors, a diagnosis of EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified), and multiple hospital and treatment center admissions.
Milena almost died. Yet she offers hope with passion, and makes a promise no one can deny.
Listen as Milena shares with us her struggle, how she found treatment, and where she is in her recovery process. This interview is an emotional and eye-opening experience!
