Hang In There, Wherever ‘There’ Is

Nicole Roberge is an Eating Disorder Survivor, Mentor and Advocate. Her memoir, “Hang in There, Wherever ‘There’ is,” tells the story of her struggle with Anorexia, her fight for recovery, and how she never lost hope. If you are in need of an encouragement and word of hope, it might be just what you need.

This compelling and poignant memoir tells about the journey through the disease of Anorexia, the recovery process, and all that comes with it-the hurt, hope and humor. After almost dying from the disease, and being neglected by the doctors, the author sought recovery and spent seven weeks at an inpatient facility.

In her powerful story, she digs into the depths of Anorexia and describes how her simple diet and exercise program turned into a horrific eating disorder-one that controlled her life and forced her to go to the gym every day for four hours and reduce her diet to only fruit. After almost suffering from a heart attack and amazed that she was still alive, she knew she had to save herself and get treatment.

Today, she is a survivor. By telling her story of the disease and recovery process, she not only educates the reader about eating disorders, but also shares with them a secret world unknown to many, and most importantly, that there is hope and recovery is possible.

As Nicole explains, “I wrote all throughout my struggle, journals and stuff, and a lot of that was used in the book. I decided to write a book because when I started recovery I looked for a book to read to help, and they were all for teenagers or parents, so being a writer, I thought I would try to write one that appealed to a larger range, about my struggle and hopefully if and when I got there, recovery. So the book covers my history and struggle then through the first year of recovery.”
