Conflict-ED…living with anorexia

In March 2016 I was diagnosed with anorexia. I'd been living in denial for months before but it was time to face the truth - I was ill and this wasn't going to go away. Through this blog I want to share my experiences - of how I got here, what's happened since, now, and in the times to come.

I hope that if you're here that you will see that my aim is only to raise awareness - that men can get this, that anyone can get this, and that if you can relate to any of what I blog and suspect you might be heading the way I did that you MUST seek help.
