‘Tis the season of travelling. There is something about May where it feels like everyone is on holiday, planning a trip or dreaming of being anywhere else but home. I’ve just returned from a few weeks down in Cornwall, my neighbour is off to Ibiza and our office is all excited about their upcoming annual leave for the summer.
For many, holidays are exciting and a welcomed break from school, work and regular home-town responsibilities. But what about if you have an eating disorder? How does that excitement twist and turn into anxiety and uncertainty?
We asked service users to share their experiences, thoughts and worries about summer and any holidays they have coming up.
