A Girl Called Tim
June Alexander developed Anorexia Nervosa at age 11. So began a journey of more than 40 years with two eating disorders. A Girl Called Tim is about an unrelenting quest to reclaim identity, grab hold of the hand of that little girl lost, and set out on new adventures to rebuild and explore true sense of self. This book is about hope and never-giving-up. At age 11, June developed anorexia nervosa, an illness that challenged and shaped her life. A love of words became a tool for survival and she became a senior writer, editor and newspaper columnist. After recovering from her illness at age 55 in 2006, June departed her journalism career to write books – combining life experience and professionals skills to disseminate evidence-based research for health practitioners and mainstream readers.
