There are many, many people out there that are suffering on a day-to-day basis because of a bad relationship with food, or poor diets. Medical conditions, genetic predisposition, habitualness, homelessness, or poverty. Whether that be a condition brought on by poor past diet choices, an eating disorder that takes over their life, a lack of food or access to food, or an illness that actually makes eating painful. Can you imagine what it must be like to go through mental or physical agony at just the thought of attempting to eat an apple? It is horrifically unfair that the thing keeping them alive is the very thing ruining their life.
I hope I can shed some much needed like on these stigmatised issues. I will be devoting a category on my blog to this, and throughout the following years I will be organising fundraisers for several charities relating to these issues.
