Hi guys. This is the most personal video I have ever filmed & uploaded on my YouTube channel. I was really afraid to share this part of my life with you guys because topics like these are often seen as taboo or have some sort of stigma attached to them. However the reality of it is that many of us suffer with these kinds of issues and the less we talk about them the more problematic they become. So I made this video in an effort to help those of you out there who are possibly going through the same thing and show you that you are not alone. I hope it helps somebody and I hope you'll be kind to yourselves as well as others.

P.S. Something that I didn't get to touch on in this video was fitness. I never worked out or exercised during my darkest times of bulimia because I was afraid of gaining weight a.k.a muscle mass (how stupid is that?? Only after did I realise how ridiculous that is!). Around three months into my recovery I started working with a trainer (Lucy) and I feel like getting fitter and stronger for the right reasons really aided my recovery a lot. So fitness can be a huge help, however always consult your doctor or therapist before starting any kind of exercise because it might not be appropriate for your specific eating disorder recovery. In fact in some cases, it's not advisable at all especially if you have used exercise as a part of your eating disorder (something which I never did, for me it was the opposite). However on the whole, I think that moving your body and being active is amazing for your mental health. And much, much healthier than cutting calories or trying to go on any stupid diet.
