As cliché as it may sound, ever since I was blessed enough to meet Millie a few months ago when I was an inpatient, she has continued to be my shining light throughout my recovery. I have been struggling with anorexia nervosa for four years now and never have I come across someone as inspirational, hard-working and determined as Millie.

The time and effort Millie has put into my recovery and the recovery of our group is more than any treating team has. She has contributed to my recovery and supported me beyond any professional or multidisciplinary inpatient team which I believe is through her sincere love and care with her own experience and understanding.

I thought I was alone and there was never going to be a end, until I met Millie. Millie is such a caring, lovely and down to earth lady. Her story is very powerful and her strengths and her empowerments are helping others battle their inner demons.

After years of therapy that only ever helped me reach a certain point in recovery, I am so grateful to now have Millie Thomas mentoring me through this challenging process. Millie’s own lived experience and inspiring full recovery has given her compassionate insight into eating disorders that one cannot learn merely from books.

endED… A heartfelt space of support through love, understanding, growth and humour. The coming together of the passionate and determined in the quest to end eating disorders. To support and be supported by each other and our experiences on the journey through this hideous illness.

I’m not sure how I would have managed this journey without the EndED carer support group. No-one can understand the challenges and pain involved in caring for someone with an eating disorder like another carer who has lived experience. This group is so warm, accepting and supportive, and that has gone a long way to helping me continue on without losing my own mental health.

My connection with EndED came about by chance, I was desperate and exhausted, trying to navigate my way around just how to deal with a loved one with an eating disorder, and by chance I was given a mobile number to call, which I did and attended my first EndEd meeting where I was introduced to amazing group of very accepting, non judgmental people.
