Hi, I’m Abi! I’m twenty years old, a student living in London, and consider myself in remission from anorexia nervosa. That I can label my relationship with anorexia a “remission” never ceases to amaze me. For a long time this wasn’t the case. As a teenager, my life spiralled down a dark path along which the eating disorder met me, befriended me, and dragged me down with it. Comforted by the sense of control that anorexia can give, I watched as the joys of life slipped farther and farther away. For a while I was content to make that sacrifice. But in time I realised that a true friend lifts you up - and all the anorexia ever did was bury me in pain, anxiety, and isolation. After much deliberation and self-doubt, I mustered up all my courage, and asked for help in ridding myself of my false friend.
