Samia Talks About Eating Disorders, Trauma, and Anxiety

Indie rocker Samia joins the Going There with Dr. Mike podcast to share her struggle anxiety led and how it led to her dealing with an eating disordered behaviors.

Throughout her life, the Scout musician experienced anxiety, where her mind would focus on scary possibilities – things that could go wrong that she could not control. This sense of loss of control was exacerbated by both her having suffered sexual abuse and the subsequent judgment and invalidation she experienced from others when she shared her traumatic event.

Samia discusses how she sought to regain a sense of control through eating disordered behavior in which she would try to maintain a low and unhealthy weight. She explains how she was able to regain a sense of control not only by allowing herself to engage in weight restoration to achieve a healthy weight, but also by being empathic and validating towards herself even when others were not.

So let's go there with Samia!
