I had previously had private counselling sessions for a few weeks in August 2016 but I then got a new job in London and had to stop them. Once I got to London I had a few months when I felt really happy and felt like everything was finally looking up for me. Around December 2016 I had just split from my first relationship and thing turned to the worst for me. I was bingeing a lot and restricting the days following the binges. I left home early and didn’t spend New Year’s or my birthday at home with my family and friends because I was so scared of putting more weight on and being at home the binges seemed to have got worse. In January I sought help from my GP who referred me to the local eating disorder service and FREED.
I remember meeting Nicole in the first week of May and I was quite shocked to learn that I had bulimia. I knew I had a very hostile relationship with food and exercise which began in my second year of university in 2014. Nicole was very informative and made sure I was aware of all of my options. I felt like I was finally going to have a chance to change my life.
