I wanted to let you know about a new listserve I am creating that other
colleagues may be interested in. This is an additional listserve that will
run separately from Neuroendolist. It will NOT replace Neuroendolist.
Over the years of writing about eating disorders, I have received e-mails
from colleagues asking for help with their own eating issues. It's always an
embarrassing issue for the person asking for help, because there is an
assumption that having a degree in nutrition or counseling means one
shouldn't be "weak" enough to have problems with food. That is absolutely
Unfortunately, the fear of losing credibility precludes many of our
colleagues from asking for help, or talking about their struggles, which
keeps them trapped in a life that provides them with less than they deserve.
I have decided to start a listserve designed to be a place for these
professionals to connect and support each other in an anonymous fashion.
Colleagues who are interested in such a listserve can do the following:
1. Decide which e-mail address they would like to use as their username.
If they feel their primary e-mail account would identify them, then they need
to create a secondary AOL account or a free account with a service provider
such as hotmail.com, yahoo.com, or juno.com that maintains their anonymity.
2. Write me, without signing their name (to keep it anonymous from me as
well), asking to join this listserve. The e-mail address from which they
contact asking to be added to the list is the one that will identify them on
3. This is absolutely NOT a counseling or supervision service provided by
me. This service should not even be considered as a substitute for
professional counseling or supervision. It is a safe place to support each
other in a positive, constructive fashion. I am only facilitating the
process and the server space for the conversation, my personal contributions
will be minimal and administrative in nature.
4. My contact address for expressing interest is <A HREF="mailto:monika at afterthediet.com">monika at afterthediet.com</A>.
Please share this information in venues where you think there may be
