Right now, we are all living through—and losing loved ones to—an epidemic. Eating disorders are not gender, religious, or political-specific. They don’t discriminate based on love, language, age, or race. And they aren’t easy to battle, but they can be conquered.
One of the most valuable ways to support those at risk, those already fighting, and those who have fought is by breaking the silence. Eating disorders center around secrecy and shame. Speaking up and acknowledging that EDs are legitimate mental disorders–not a phase, or something to just “get over”–makes it easier to start a discussion.
Kelly’s Circle is emblematic of the issues that those affected by eating disorders face. Wearing one of these pendants allows you start a conversation and share your unique story, whether it’s of struggle, triumph, support, or loss.
