I’m Hannah and I’m not an anorexic. This is what I would say if I went along to ‘Anorexics Anonymous.’ Anorexia invaded my mind and my body for a decade and tried to destroy Hannah. But I am not an anorexic and I’m re-claiming my identity.
These blog posts chart the recovery of a 33 year old chronic anorexia sufferer as I seize my life back from Ana and rediscover my voice in the world. I hope that my fight back against Ana will help, encourage and inspire others suffering from eating disorders, especially those who have been ill for a long time like me. My decade long struggle with Ana has also given me lots of ideas about how treatments could be improved and I hope to start a conversation about change.
