I grew up as a loved child at home, but was bullied at school. I gradually developed BED and ended up with a body that weighed 150 kg, and a shame that was at least 10 times as heavy.
In 2011 I had a gastric bypass. Since then I have gone through a lot of operations due to excess skin, and now and then my BED knocks on the door, so I do know how this is a chronic illness.
I have been an advocate for 7 years, driven by the dream of a world without bias and fatshaming, but equality for all humans.
