06 Jun The secret life of eating disorders.
Eating disorder behaviour is usually conducted in secret. Friends, family and peers can often be completely unaware that someone is bingeing, purging or denying themselves food.
At some point, we hope the sufferer will become brave enough to recognise the problem and seek help.
This is where a health professional, may enter the picture. What you do next could make the difference between recovery and the continuation of a lifelong problem for that person.
We so often hear stories from people who sought help, but were turned away, or people that received ineffective help from a professional who didn’t really understand eating disorders. These people often return to the eating disorder with renewed vigour, as the eating disorder provides a solution in a world where ‘nobody can help’
We hope you will join us and become someone who does understand.
