EN: Eating Disorders, Aoife Khan’s speech
Tuesday, 7 November, 2017
As an extension of the World Mental Health Day upon the invitation of the EGSC Aoife Khan, our 4th-year student of General Medicine shared her story living with an Eating Disorder.
It has been stated by the British psychiatrist Dee Dawson that “one-third of sufferers fully recover, one-third live symptomless life with continued distorted thoughts, and finally, one-third never recover”.
Aoife was categorized as the one-third which will never recover from the illness, however she has learned the recovery was possible.
