Replay: Eating Disorders directly related to Anxiety Disorders


Jeni Cain is more than just the owner of an extremely successful boutique in Greenville, SC. Although she is quite impressive with her business acumen and top-notch fashion sense, you will learn from today’s podcast that she can also play the part of therapist and cheerleader, winning you over with her infectious sunny outlook on life. She always says what you didn’t even know you needed to hear. I personally always feel better after our conversations. So it’s no wonder that she is an open book about her struggles with bulimia and anxiety. She is in recovery and openly talks about her journey in order to help others. Behind her smile, there is a depth of strength and experience that I wish I had access to when I was in college and struggled with an eating disorder. But like SUD, no one wanted to discuss it as it was deemed a moral failure or a sickness to be kept secret. If you have teens or young adults, let them listen to this one!

Here are some stats from the South Carolina Department of Mental Health
-Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness
-Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents
-95% of those who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25
-50% of girls between the ages of 11 and 13 see themselves as overweight
-80% of 13-year-olds have attempted to lose weight
-studies show that about two-thirds of people with eating disorders also suffer from an anxiety disorder
