"Support me on Patreon and receive super cool rewards!

My name is Desi, and have battled numerous eating disorders in the past 4 years. EDNOS and Anorexia to name just two. I have finally chosen to share this time with you through pictures and footage, hoping it'll allow me to let go of such a dark and traumatic time in my life.

Numerous times I was brought to tears whilst making this, I only hope it opens your eyes to the reality of anorexia and the struggle we face daily (during and recovering). Please share this video with someone you know who could benefit from my message and story, or share it amongst your friends to bring attention to the actions and behaviour that indicates suffering from an eating disorder (weight loss, isolation).

If you a struggling please seek help or contact me via my social media or my email: (Please bare with me as I have received many long, emotional emails. My account has also been messed with in some way and I can't access my email on all devices)
