REVIEW of Meeting Myself by Author Iris Ford

MEETING  MYSELF: SNIPPETS FROM A BINGING AND BULGING MIND

It’s not  often you pick up a book and can’t put it down.  The inner agony here is palpable. You  will feel it as you read. The pace rushes on and you say to yourself, “Oh, what  will she do?”  The author has got  you in her grasp, or maybe it is better to say – her bulimic despair has you up-tight,  especially if you also suffer from the up-chucking that is actually clenching  Brenda in its grip.  Can you get rid  of your despair that way, or any way?  If this is you, hiding in there, then this book will grab you!

Brenda  suffers agony and keeps it all to her ‘self’, upchucking down the pipes of the “white toilet”, trying to get rid of an unpleasant agony from childhood. “White” means pure, right? You read on and get the message: this is a struggle to be  pure.  Only God achieves that and He  does as the book hurries you on.  One senses the tug of war with God and one’s body.  What to eat, or better put: how much NOT  to eat, or even better, HIDE the food where no one else will find it until  later, later, later in unimaginable places.  The struggle goes on, and you read on  and on, sharing her despair and secret.

Finally, the  reader also shares Brenda’s approach to God where she thankfully finds healing  and peace.  But it is not over yet.  God moves slowly as Brenda takes you along her every struggle until God fills  her soul and body with forgiveness and peace. Yes, this is quite a book and if  you know anyone suffering from this affliction do share Brenda’s story.  Here is hope, forgiveness and a loving,  forgiving, healing Saviour. Jesus also knows what a painfully suffering body is  all about as His body took the brunt of all our sin, including  Brenda’s.

Brenda is  openly honest as she “Meets with herself, sharing these Snippets from a Binging  and Bulging Mind”, showing the reader what it feels like to suffer from a  bulimic disposition. Yet Brenda also brings children into the world and shares a  loving relationship with her husband.  How did she do it, you ask?  Well, read on and find out.  You will enjoy this book even if you aren’t bulimic. We all suffer from  some kind of pain, whether in the body or mind – usually in both.

Book Review

Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite
“Meeting Myself” is a well-written 98 page book that will appeal to anyone fighting off inner demons by eating and to all those who may have done so since an early age. Author Brenda Wood has issues with food since an early age. She even recalls herself starting to eat her younger brother Larry’s chocolate Easter Bunny as well as her own as a four year old. Brenda Wood admits to having great inner anger at having been abused as a child. She doesn’t say what the abuse was or when, but the reader will surmise it wasn’t nice. Brenda Wood went from satisfying her fear of things and need for comfort by eating on to eating and then throwing up in the toilet which is bulimia. Even a happy, satisfying marriage did not cure Brenda’s demons until she took her Christian faith seriously and learned that God is with us in good times and bad times and proved it in her daily life.
“Meeting Myself” is a book that should be in everyone’s hands everywhere. Brenda Wood honestly tells the reader about her not always smooth path to controlling her eating binges, her bulimia. Brenda Wood is forthright in telling the reader how she would decide to walk with God and then lose her resolve and go on an eating binge. What she shares with the Christian reader is priceless in its honesty. On page 93 she writes: “Expose both abuse and eating disorder to the light. ..Keep telling until someone believes you.” She admits that she had great anger against her abuser, anger against the people who should have protected her from that abuse, and anger against herself. “Meeting Myself” is a book that will guide, inspire and keep the reader going when the dark clouds of life are overwhelming.
