Since being diagnosed with avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) in 2017 when I was a late teenager, I have learned and experienced the highs and lows of battling this strange eating disorder.

I still don’t really understand it myself and I don’t expect anyone else to that doesn’t struggle with mental illness either.

I still hardly know anyone my age or older with this eating disorder, I almost always hear of toddlers, young kids or teenagers with this eating disorder, so I haven’t really had someone to guide me through this who has had a similar experience.
