What about the adults?

First of all sorry for y sudden disappearance. I was transferred to a specialist unit where we’re not allowed access to social media. Special dispensation has been made in order for me to continue my blog. Its been a big change and I’m still getting used to it but I’m finally starting to see rays of light and that feels amazing.

Today I’m going to talk about something very close to my heart. Last week I saw a news story that solely focused on children’s mental health, in particular eating disorders. I t was stating that waiting times were improving and more funding was being directed towards those services. And I couldn’t help but think “what about the adults?: Where’s the funding for them?”

As I’ve talked about before I have an eating disorder. When I tried to seek help I was left on the waiting list for a year and went from bulimic to seriously anorexic. People die on waiting lists for ED services and that shouldn’t happen. So as I asked before, “Wher’s the funding for the adults?’

Bye for now, I’ll be back in two weeks. Keep safe.
