Brunch Over Bones

Why did I start it and how I hope to help people with it;
2012; the year the word ‘Anorexia’ came into my vocabulary as a huge shock diagnosis! From a youngster I have been very much a foodie but sadly, anorexia does not discriminate and will take you when you least expect it. Restricting and exercising to excess encompassed me, and within 3 months I was extremely poorly and at a very low point in my life. From here things could only get better and recovery was hard work but so worth it! 2013; I was recovered and there was no better feeling of freedom and self-awareness. 2018; I started to struggle with Orthorexia which slowly led me back to Anorexia round 2. This took me by great surprise as I thought I was ‘over it’. Mental health is so important to look after and that is the lesson I continue to take away from my current recovery.
