Eating disorder behaviours are irrational and unreasonable, and the potential for conflict is enormous. Unconditional love is demanded even whilst you are being rejected – which means that you will need a lot of empathy for yourself too…
My name is Kate and I am 34 years old. I first developed anorexia when I was 20/21. Since then it has been living with me like a twin. I am fully aware of the anorexia. I do not try to conceal it, and although my mind has not healed completely, I can cope with it much better than before.
I’m still amazed at how little knowledge there is about eating disorders across workplaces. It’s 2022 and mental health is a topic that countless businesses are committed to supporting. Eating disorders are mental health conditions – so where do they fit in?
