Today kicks off NEDA (National Eating Disorders Awareness) week 2018! This is always one of my favorite times of the year. Teaching others about eating disorders and spreading awareness is something I’m very passionate about. This is my 4th year doing so in some capacity on my blog 🙂
I can’t promise a post every day, but I’ll definitely be doing as many as possible. I do have a ton of ideas
The theme this year is Let’s Get Real. Here is a blurb about it from the NEDA website:
Our theme this year is Let’s Get Real and our goal is to expand the conversation and highlight stories we don’t often hear. Our culture has complicated relationships with food, exercise, and appearance.
30 million Americans will struggle with a full-blown eating disorder and millions more will battle food and body image issues that have untold negative impacts on their lives.
But because of stigma and old stereotypes, many people don’t get the support they deserve. Join the conversation and help us raise awareness, bust myths, get people screened, and start journeys to healing.
