Two bits of news!

The first bit of news is that my new eating disorders website is up and running. I still need to do a few tweaks and add some more pages, but the 'look and feel' is there now. (I know I updated it a short while ago, but I wasn't happy with it, so I've given it a refresh as well as adding a security certificate for safer browsing.)

The second bit of news is that I've just returned from a weekend in Brighton where I met up with the other new Board members of the national charity Men Get Eating Disorders Too. A month or so ago I was invited to join as a Trustee.

I arrived late on Friday, just after their annual eating disorders conference which, unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend, but I understand it went really well.

It was great to meet up with Men Get Eating Disorders Too founder Sam Thomas again who I keep bumping into at various eating disorders conferences and also to meet the other members of the team. Our new Chairperson is a mum like me who's been through the hell of an eating disorder with her teenage son, so we already had a heck of a lot in common.We also love cats. And we also have roots in the city of Sheffield.

All of us are looking forward to helping the charity to expand and also raise money to do what they do best which is to help raise awareness of the fact the men and boys get eating disorders and also to provide much-needed assistance and peer support to males who are suffering with eating disorders.
