Are addicts attracted to animal rescue? When does being of service become codependency?

In this episode of The Animal That Changed You, Jenny and Katya take an honest deep dive into the relationship between animal lovers/rescuers, food addiction, and eating disorders.

They shed light on the tornado of shame, guilt, and self-hatred that comes with having an eating disorder, along with the added stress of being a passionate animal advocate. They discuss the difficulties of dealing with stress, being addicted to sugar, and gaining weight while fighting the good fight for animal welfare.

On a brighter note, they highlight the importance of animal lovers prioritizing health and self-care and the power of leaning on the community for support. Plus, tune in to hear an important update on Penny, the adorable pit bull we recently rescued!
