Episode 51: I Haven't Shaved in Six Weeks
Featuring Lindsey Hall
Call it what you want: an escape, a road trip, a vacation, a getaway. Travel is, literally, a common vehicle for those looking to disconnect, reflect, and recover.
But that’s the version of recovery and travel that’s tied up neatly with a bow. The reality is that, in the face of grief, trauma-- or in Lindsey Hall’s case: an eating disorder-- there is usually a lot of healing that needs to happen first before travel is even an option.
While the road to recovery can sometimes be found on an actual road, it’s a fairly romantic notion that it’s that simple. There’s usually a lot of work that needs to happen first. But that’s the thing about travel: it can be a big motivator.
