My first guest of the season, Roger Lloyd-Thompson, plays interviewer and asks ME about my eating disorders.
It seems only fair if I am to expect the same from others. Eating disorders are difficult to talk about, however recovered.
I believe that eating disorders are about unmanageable feelings. Once we stop the physical behaviours what do we do with them?
I hope these conversations shed light in dark corners, prompt debate and, at best, heal.
