This past year Ben captured our hearts after he opened up about his eating disorder, depression and suicide attempts on National television. In this episode, Ben dives into these topics and gets more vulnerable than ever! He shares why he loved and then left the Army, why eating disorder recovery is not linear, and talks about the importance of friends/family and community. After listening to this you just might find that Ben is the best friend, big brother and boyfriend we all wish we had! ;)
