If you haven’t heard of PostSecret (www.postsecret.com), it’s a blog where people anonymously send in their secrets written on one side of a postcard – all pictures I have posted today are taken directly from their blog. This week, in honour of “Eating Disorders Awareness Week”, they’ve posted the postcards above, which reflect the struggles that real people suffering from eating disorders hide. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses. Always be compassionate, aware and understanding with anyone you may know who is suffering from these disorders. After all, every human being you encounter is struggling with something.
