This article uses an auto/ethnographic lens to juxtapose experiences of ‘eating dysorder’ and ‘recovery’ lived in the contrasting milieu of bio-medical and somatic discourse and practice. Evocative auto/ethnography serves here as an anchor for reflections upon the question of why I experience embodied subjectivity so differently within the somatic field, and why I consider these experiences as critical events in my ‘recovery process’.
