Emily: Autism and Atypical Anorexia
"I found it hard to get help after my diagnosis because I didn’t fit the stereotypes that people had in their minds about autism and anorexia. Professionals working with autistic people need more education about supporting us because their words can be harmful. It didn’t help when people treated me like I was attention seeking or could change how I thought without help." Emily shares her experience as an autistic woman living with atypical anorexia.
