I Do Not Have An Eating Disorder

Khale's first and longest graphic novel is called 'I Do Not Have An Eating Disorder'.

"I Do Not Have An Eating Disorder" is a comic memoir that chronicles the artist's journey with anorexia nervosa - from diagnosis to eventual recovery. Khale represents her inner voice as three demons constantly talking over her shoulder, willing her to make dangerous choices. Equal parts gut-wrenching and uplifting, this is ultimately a story of hope - proving that recovery is possible, even from the darkest depths of addiction.
