Welcome to Joy-Curious which began as Never Not Hungry, a journal of my recovery from binge eating, and which has recently morphed into something much bigger. I imagine I’ll talk about eating disorder recovery, but I’m most interested in figuring out what I really likeā€”and maybe what I’m really like.

I am not a medical or mental health professional of any kind. I’m a mother of two (and partner of one) with a passion for talking about hard stuff.

In my former life I was an editor, a video artist, dinner-theater actress, a grocery-handler and shopping-cart-wrangler, and a student of English language and literature. I’m especially interested the words we use to talk about our bodies, our selves, and our experiences. Language can keep us stuck in old habits and thought-patterns, or help us to move forward.

If you’d like to connect with me, you can e-mail ohhinoelle@gmail.com.

I’m glad you’re here.
