Men Get Eating Disorders Too: why the conversation about eating disorders has to be more inclusive

I am a male who was diagnosed with anorexia at the age of 20. At first I was ashamed and embarrassed. But I now realise that I had nothing to be ashamed about. I want you to know that it is ok to feel pain, but you do not need to feel shame and guilt - it is ok to ask for help. If you fear you may have an eating disorder or think you know a guy who might, it's time to speak up and ge the help you need and deserve. I did. It was the hardest process I have ever experienced, but it was worth it.
