Hi! I'm Scarlet!

Hello all! I'm Scarlet & I'm really Proud of the American version of Proud2Bme! I Proud2Bme created in 2009 in The Netherlands. I really hope lots of young women will feel supported here! Recovery from an eating disorder is possible, there is hope! Fight, ask for help & be kind to yourself. Big hug & take care Scarlet

Hey don't forget the men out there who suffer from this illness! Haha just saying because Im a male, 20 years old, and I've suffered from bulimia for about 6 years now and I'm in the early stages of recovery myself and Im on here looking for some support

Hi Sdczero24! Glad to see that men are also joining this site and commenting. I'm female but I think it's got to be so tough for the guys out there. The resources are limited and the social bias is totally unfair. More men should have the strength you do to face your ED and take the steps toward recovery. Can't wait to hear more from you and the male perspective on ED.
