Campaign: To show that anorexia doesn't just affect women

My Fixers project is aimed at breaking down stereotypes about anorexia. 

 

When I was 15 things felt massively out of control for me in terms of friendship groups, schoolwork and family, and that's when I started to develop anorexia. 

 

Everyone always associates this illness with wanting to be thin but for me it wasn't anything about that. I didn't care how I looked, I didn't care how thin I was, it was all about just having something to control.

 

I want to shed some light on the issue of anorexia in men. I want people to realise that men do suffer with this illness as well as women. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix
