#27 Opening Up About Eating Disorders with the Butterfly Foundation
“Eating disorders…serve a function. And it’s about the person experiencing, coming to the realisation that the costs are outweighing the benefits. That it’s a personal journey and it might take a long time for someone to realise, that ‘this is working in a little part of my life…but the big picture, it’s not really working. But I also have to have the knowledge and the faith that there is a better way of doing things.’”
“A lot of people don’t understand that eating disorders affect women and men across the lifespan. You would be surprised, when I tell people what I do for work, people will say ‘oh so you work with young girls,’ I say yeah I do, and I also work with 70 year-old women, and men!”
