February 23rd to March 1st is Eating Disorder Awareness Week
An eating disorder survivor button is a positive way of showing the strength that comes with overcoming something like bulimia or anorexia.
Did you know that there are more ED’s than just anorexia and bulimia? Some other forms of Eating Disorders include:
Drunkorexia is a condition where people can drink with the purpose of it making them vomit, or when people count alcohol calories to the point that they restrict other drinks and food to control overall calorie intake.
Diabulimia is when people with Type 1 Diabetes take less insulin than needed with the intent to loose weight.
Males and younger people are often overlooked when it comes to Eating Disorders, but recently there has been a rise in the number of both children and males who are diagnosed with ED’s.
