Personal Note from Sandee Nebel: How Do You Connect?

The world has changed. Gone are the days of relaxing in a rocking chair, greeting our neighbors as they pass by our front porch. More and more people are retreating into their own corners. What's the impact? A lack of connection can be devastating, especially for those recovering from an eating disorder. When you're struggling to give up an obsession with food and weight, positive relationships can be a healthy alternative to focus on.
 
Rockers
We all need other people in order to grow. Strong connections with people breed good health all around – emotional, mental and physical. Luckily, with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and online and mobile technology, we can stay in touch all day long. We can even bring our contacts along when we're on the move.
 
I'm curious: Do you feel more or less connected these days? Do you use social networking sites and mobile technology?
Please reply to this post and let me know. We'll be talking about connection all month in these updates.
 
Here at the White Picket Fence Counseling Center, we're striving to maintain that warm, welcoming home-like atmosphere of days gone by. If you'd like to come by and sample our hospitality, while receiving support and information about eating disorders, here is a link to learn more about our October and November programs: http://wpfcounseling.typepad.com/oct-nov%20groups.pdf.
 
There is also a six-week overeating recovery group beginning next week on October 14, 2010.
More details are available at:

Watch for next week's feature article about making connections by creating your own family.
