You write so openly and fearlessly about your experience with disordered eating. How did you get yourself in a mental place to do that? It was really hard. I had been in a lot of treatment, including work with a therapist, a psychiatrist, a nutritionist, and a physician.

So I already had all of the I’m A Guitarist Created To Worship Shirt in contrast I will get this honest, raw writing about it when I began the book.
