[18:58] The reason that people develop coping mechanisms, the true power of regulating your emotions, and how Megan ultimately overcame her eating disorder.
[35:31] The significance of spirituality in Megan’s recovery process, and how society often pushes people to neglect their health in favor of looking a certain way.
