I am fundraising for Beat, the UK's eating disorder charity.
15 years ago came to the end of an 8 year battle with Bulimia. Back then, there was little awareness or support available. Had I been aware of Beat back then, I am certain that, not only would my road to recovery have been much less lonely, but I also believe it would have begun much sooner.
Beat supports anyone with an eating disorder, their family and friends, as well as professionals working with, or worried about, an individual in their care. Eating disorders do not discriminate. Up to one in four sufferers are male, despite popular belief that eating disorders affect females only and can affect both children and adults.
