BBC III has aired a documentary about T1D and eating disorders. Because the iPlayer from the BBC is only available in the UK, I figured I couldn’t watch it, but you can!
It’s embedded in this newsarticle:
It’s hard to watch for me, because it brings back a lot of memories. I’m glad that the BBC is putting a spotlight on this, because when I first was diagnosed as having an eating disorder, nobody made the relationship between my T1D and this eating disorder. And because I wasn’t binging and purging or limiting the amount of calories I would take, I thought that my eating disorder was just a case of “eating too much” and didn’t really take myself seriously and neither did the mental health care professionals.
