My Name Is Caroline is an autobiography by Caroline Adams Miller, chronicling her struggle with bulimia.

According to a review in the New York Times, the book is structured similarly to most autobiographies by former alcoholics. It describes Miller's "seven-year slide into degradation and despair", with the initial chapters acting as almost a how-to guide for bulimics. By the end of the memoir, Miller has joined a therapy program for overeaters and has overcome her eating disorder and now is healthier than ever .[1]
