My story

[p]Eating disorders are complex mental health problems. They are also horrible things, they take over your whole life, change your personality, suffocate your hopes and dreams, isolate you from those you love, convince you that the pain they cause is what you deserve and disguise themselves as your best friend and the only friend you need. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Over 1.6 million people in the UK are estimated to be directly affected by eating disorders. This is likely to be an underestimate as we know there is a huge level of unmet need in the community. Good quality comprehensive services for people with eating disorders are not yet available in many parts of England. ABC offers vital support for sufferers and their families struggling with eating disorders, often faced by cripplingly long waits for traditional treatments or beds miles away from home. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I will be running two half marathons over two months. I am running as a survivor of an eating disorder and a passionate supporter of ABC. The money that I raise will directly support The Hub, a weekly drop in centre that they run in Bath. It is the first of it's kind in the country and offers vital support for people with eating disorder and their families. Thank you for supporting me and helping ABC continue this amazing work. [/p]
