Hard Truths, Diabiulimia & Sexuality

The Full of Beans Podcast by Hannah Hickinbotham

Episode notes

In this weeks episode, Han is joined by Actor and Singer, Lawrence Smith.

In this weeks podcast, we discuss a whole host of really important topics, and explore things that may sometimes be uncomfortable to discuss.

Lawrence was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child, so he hasn't ever known any difference. With Lawrence, we discuss labels, diabulimia, and the need for protection and support as he had always had his diabetic team.

We discuss how eating disorders can be a cry for help, a need for safety, to shrink yourself and show you aren't okay if you can't put it into words - all of these things have negative connotations but are TRUE and shouldn't be seen as a negative.

We speak about the work needed to improve the support of those with diabulimia, including education, funding, and the role of professionals.
