I stood at the checkout recently, as we all do, and my eyes fell on the magazine rack..... OMG ... ! I am so tired of the repeated stories and disturbing photos of an extremely unwell person (usually a womanand usually famous) on the cover...and comments about their body. If you are working really hard to recover from an eating disorder, I will give you a tip.... please refuse to look at popular women's magazines for a while.. they can be toxic if you are unwell. ..Just ignore them ..buy a gardening or home furnishing magazine if you like to have magazines but treat anything that comments on bodies as toxic to you ... until you build a healthy immunity..
Founded TRED in July 2011 to give encouragement and hope to people in Tasmania who are seeking recovery from an Eating disorder.
