“An eating disorder can be likened to an internal battle between two wolves, according to Julie White.

“Which one will win?” she asked. “The one you feed.”

White was one of several individuals who shared stories of recovery from such disorders at a gathering Monday evening in Naperville. About 300 people gathered in a courtyard garden at the Linden Oaks at Edward treatment center for a 10th annual candlelight vigil.”
