Sometimes I wonder what is the point of TRED.... after all who cares???
Can't people with eating disorders just eat or eat normally and not binge... what the hell ... isn't it a natural thing to nourish yourself??
But I know it is not that simple.
What worries me is when I get calls or referrals from GPs about a person who they are not "sure" has an eating disorder ... and yet they have lost about 20 kilos in a very short space of time, is obsessed about weighing themselves and has a fear of gaining weight.. ... what more evidence do they need???
Apparently the health department .... whoever they are in Tasmania .. is it THO, Medicare local, or the DHHS,? don't think TRED needs any kind of funding to support families or sufferers ....
I am not quite ready to give up though, but I do honestly get tired of ignorance.
