"I am really happy because I am getting better"

About: South West London And St George's Mental Health NHS Trust / Eating disorders

(as the patient),

When I realised that I have an eating disorder, my GP sent me to Springfield eating disorder unit. To be honest, I had no hope...I thought that no one could help me. But now, I just cannot believe how big progress I made, and all thanks to my therapists. I am still going to the therapy, and although it is still very hard, I am really happy because I am getting better. I have such a big support from my therapists and I can feel that they care.
