In my younger, teenage years, I suffered from Anorexia Nervosa and it was a pretty horrible experience. Your desire to control every aspect of what comes in and out of your body in a truly unhealthy way leads you on a path to eventual destruction. I was one of the lucky ones who managed to climb out of the pit of despair I was in thanks to a loving support structure consisting of friends, family and a very good therapist. However, not everyone is as lucky as I was when it comes to support.
This is why I feel it is my duty to create something helpful and hopeful out of a truly bad experience, so that all those people affected by this horrible illness have somewhere to turn to for encouragement and guidance.
I truly hope that this project helps many people who need it, from the sufferers themselves to their friends, families and therapists. Understanding and listening is always the first step and it is a step I hope you can all take together with the help of the different Stories and Resources available on this site.
I would like to thank each and every person that has put their time and effort into contributing to this project already, as well as those people that I hope will get in touch so they can contribute to hopefully making a difference in someone’s life, and being there for people affected by eating disorders when they truly need somewhere to turn.
