Location: Cookstown, County Tyrone
Campaign: To show others with eating disorders that you can get better

I was bullied as a child and began to develop an eating disorder in my early teens.

 

When I was diagnosed with anorexia at the age 15, it was a very low time in my life.

 

Teased about my weight, I would skip meals as way of taking back control, but really, it was controlling me.

 

I’m much better now and know what it’s like to feel genuine happiness.

 

With Fixers, I’m showing what living with an eating disorder can be like. Hopefully my story will send a message to others like me and show them they're not alone and there is help available.

 

A special thank you to fellow Fixers Jordan Caldwell, Caitlin Magnall-Kearns and Lennin McClure for helping me with my Fix.
