Us and our friends have all had different experiences with eating disorders – some personally, some through people we know.
In any case, eating disorders are particularly hard to deal with and can be triggered by a number of things.
Stress is a big factor in developing the disorders, and unfortunately you often experience more stress when battling against it. We want to show that you can get help and can overcome this.
As a group, we are creating an interactive website which gives not just those who are suffering information, but help, advice, and support to people around them.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Anorexia Bulimia Care (ABC)
A national eating disorder organisation which helped with our project.
Thank you for helping out with our website.
We were interviewed on Heart West Country to discuss our Fixers project. Click the slideshow below to listen to the interview.
Our story was also covered by the Cheddar Valley Gazette on the 3rd January.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
