Description

War with Myself is an eye-opening, heartfelt memoir of one woman’s struggle with bulimia, which seeks to help others find their own path to healing and go beyond ‘scratching the surface’ of what it’s really like to be so deeply in battle with an eating disorder.

The abuse and bullying Shani-Lee Wallis suffered as a child scarred her deeply. Desperate to change, and to gain control over the narrative of her life, she found herself embroiled in a battle – not with the perpetrators, but with herself. These events, and Shani-Lee’s struggle to overcome them led to a devastating condition; she became one of an estimated 1.25 million people in the UK and 30 million in the US to suffer with an eating disorder.

Courageously, Shani-Lee fought for her life and eventually found love and happiness. She has chosen to share her compelling story in the hope that people engaged in similar battles will find healing and peace. War with Myself is part memoir, part self-help. By sharing her raw, difficult story and the tools for change, Shani-Lee aims to educate and aid recovery. Within this book’s pages, readers from all walks of life will find daily activities that can help on the road to healing and wellbeing.
