I have written a few pieces before about adult anorexia and recently did an interview with More magazine (for women over age 40) on the subject that I think should be appearing soon. It is such an important topic and older women certainly struggle with anorexia in silence.
But breaking some of that silence this week is an article to which I'd like to draw your attention:" Adult anorexia: the forgotten tragedy of lives lost to illness", which ran in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Here's a quote: ''People who fall into this particular category are not in treatment because they are too scared to seek help - because getting better means putting on weight." And you can read the full article at the link below.
Mentioned in the article are two of my esteemed colleagues, June Alexander and Christine Morgan, chief executive of the highly esteemed Butterfly Foundation. Check out their great website here: http://www.thebutterflyfoundation.org.au/
