My Eating Disorder and Me

CW: Eating disorders

June 2nd 2016 was the first ever World Eating Disorder Day, and also the day I finally received recognition that I was suffering from an eating disorder. I remember feeling overwhelmed with sadness but also relief, finally a medical professional was listening to me and was on my side, he was finally giving me a diagnosis I'd unknowingly spent years waiting for - Binge Eating Disorder
