What is 'Disordered'?

When her sister is diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, a first-year medical student returns home as the family struggles to fix the disorder before it’s too late.

While there is a growing amount of awareness and materials that focus on mental health and eating disorders, during my own experience, I found that there was little support or openness for friends/family members of the affected. Understandably, there are some media TV/films that tackle this subject, from the perspective of the person suffering from the eating disorder. However, I’ve often found that these provide a ‘glamourized’ version of events. Or more often than not, have a guaranteed happy ending…

I personally feel like it’s important to show the good and the bad sides of a family going through something like having a child with an eating disorder. The highs and the devastating lows which can be caused and felt by anyone in the family. 
As someone who was indirectly affected by an eating disorder, I found there was a huge pressure to be ‘perfect’, to never say anything wrong or feel anything that could be detrimental, because I knew the results could be catastrophic. 

Through this storytelling I want others like me to see and understand that it’s ok to mess up, it’s ok to feel angry, upset, alone and lost, even while doing your best to try and help a person in your life recover from an eating disorder or other mental illness.
