Hello everyone, I'm Diara.
I'm 20 years old and I come from Senegal, Africa, but I've been leaving in Italy with my family since I was a child - therefore my English won't be the best (sorry!).
I've been struggling with my eating habits for 4 years now, and although I'm fully aware of the consequences and how wrong this is, I still have troubles in "coming out" to my parents and actually get into treatment.
I hope that by joining this community and reading the stories you share, I'll get the courage I need to finally speak up. In the meantime, I really want to work together with the advocates who stand up for sufferers everyday around the world. I really do care about body shaming, EDs and mental disorders in general, so you will probably see me commenting on most of the posts here (oops!).

Kisses to all of you ♡
