Raising awareness of Eating Disorders
Hundreds of people in the Midlands suffer in silence with eating disorders every day, and loads of us still don't understand what it means to have one.
On National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, we're being reminded that Anorexia and bulimia are just a couple of illnesses affecting peoples lives and health. Others include binge eating and compulsive overeating.
Kate from Worcester used to suffer with an eating disorder , she's been telling Heart what it was like:
'You feel like you can't talk to anybody, nobody would understand, that you're the only one. It's a really lonely place to be when you've got an eating disorder. It's this dillusion that everything will be okay if I get to the perfect size'.
It's been fourteen years since Kate recovered from her eating disorder, after getting help with Overeaters Anonymous, but she's been telling Heart she still can't have certain foods for fear it will trigger it off again.
All this week campaigns are going, raising awareness of eating disorders and trying to get more help and support for sufferers like Kate.
