Campaign: Encouraging understanding of eating disorders

Anorexia has had a massive impact on my life and it’s something I’ve struggled with for over four years.

 

Looking back I developed a problem with eating in 2010 but my illness wasn’t diagnosed as an eating disorder until 2014.

 

During that time my weight dropped severely. I was so weak I had to stop work, I lost friends and my social life became non-existent.

 

I believe there is a stigma attached to having an eating disorder and being anorexic.

 

With Fixers help I want to increase awareness about anorexia in the hope other young people will spot the signs sooner and seek help before their condition becomes serious.
