Recovering from anorexia: Dave’s story

Season 4 Episode 2

Dave’s backstory is a tale of going to the brink and then choosing to live, of recovery and the ongoing struggles that come as part of the package. Challenging all the stereotypes, Dave talks about his anorexia with a massive dose of humour and gives a new perspective on this most pernicious and dangerous illness.

As always, Claire and Suzy discuss the backstory and occasionally veer off at a tangent, including talking about why spots have featured heavily in both their weeks.
