"I am overwhelmed by this. Really I am." Charlotte said today when a member of F.E.A.S.T.'s UK Task Force arrived to surprise her with the award, that actually comes with a plate. "I did my best not to cry - so did Erica and the girls. We did that British thing of watery eyes…..."
She continued: "There are many many people with whom I share this - to name a few: Laura, the Modsquad, the (ever-growing) FEAST UK team, my brave mums Anita and Nelly, the forum, the members of FEAST worldwide, my FEAST FB buddies, Dr Z, my recovered and recovering pals and anyone else who knows me. This really is a team effort and I believe that we are slowly changing the way Eating Disorders are perceived and understood and grinding away at those harmful treatment regimes and protocols.
Also those clinicians who interact and don't blame parents - thank you from the bottom of my heart - keep shouting it out for me."
