Shownotes

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.
