Episode 33: Battling an Eating Disorder in Midlife with Betsy Brenner

Eating disorders can happen to anyone at any age. Join us for this vulnerable conversation with author, recovery speaker, and peer support mentor Betsy Brenner as she tells her story of receiving a diagnosis of anorexia in midlife. Discover how Betsy’s path to recovery guided her to the much deeper work of leaning into painful emotions, grieving the loss of her parents, and healing her relationship with tennis.

Betsy reveals the childhood experiences and emotional traumas that shaped her relationship with food and recounts the unique medical issues that both triggered on her eating disorder and tested her strength in recovery. Betsy is living proof that healing is possible in mind, body, and spirit and continues to spread her message of hope throughout the eating disorder.
