What am I talking about I hear you ask? The answer is 1 simple word personified in so many complicated ways. I am talking about anorexia.
I suffered from this disease/illness/disorder, whatever you want to call it 10 years ago. It affected 2 years of my life and I am not too proud to admit it that it is still affecting me now.
It did not just affect me, it affected everyone around me, from my granny to my school teachers, everyone. The ones that were so prominent in my recovery efforts were the ones that I can see now had the best understanding of me. Maybe the psychologist and the dietician did help, maybe, but I believe it was the supportive network of the most amazing people in the world that got me through, them and a heck of a lot of hard work on my part.
There is your reason for me writing this book. This is for every single person even remotely affected by anorexia, be it the friend of a friend, a family member or even yourself. I want to help you understand just how devious, challenging, confusing, angry anorexics can be and how you can beat it; you just have to understand it first.
