Hey, I'm Barbara Baker.

Barbara pops Prozac but also takes doses of vanilla bean coffee, sun salutations, captivating books, trashy tv, and actually talking about her feelings. She was diagnosed with an eating disorder when she was seventeen and after a few half-drunken, half-academic years at university she was diagnosed with depression in 2017 and then anorexia nervosa in 2018. But like any frat boy faced with “the what are we?” talk, Barbara doesn’t care too much for labels.

Barbara is a writer and not a mental health professional but she hopes to use her writing to build connections regarding mental health.
