Eating disorders can affect women, men, boys and girls. There is not a definitive cause for an eating disorder and their symptoms are extremely varied. If you feel worried or anxious about your relationship with food or your body; seek help. If you are feeling depressed and have difficulty in coping; seek help.
Conditions survive in shame secrecy and silence. People may become ashamed of themselves; tell themselves; they should be coping better. Self esteem begins to drop and they may start to isolate. Perhaps they have become dependent on alcohol or drugs. Nowadays many are experiencing financial ruin. Some may have lost a loved one: while others may have received a life changing diagnosis. Whatever your situation: if you feel fearful or anxious about life and experience difficulty in coping: seek help. This thought might fill you with fear but remember change is about enhancing and improving quality of life
