Every story is unique, and this EDAW, we want to highlight the ones we don’t usually hear. Maybe you or the people around you believed eating disorders couldn’t affect you; maybe you faced discrimination when seeking help; maybe another mental or physical health condition further complicated the eating disorder and your treatment.
Too many people don’t get help for their eating disorder because their illness goes unrecognised. By shining a light on the experiences of people whose voices aren’t usually heard, we can begin to change the narrative around eating disorders, to show they do not discriminate and that everyone who gets one deserves fast, high-quality treatment.
