A young woman from Norwich who has a disorder that makes her feel compelled to eat has created a website to support others with similar conditions.
Ria Box, who is battling Binge Eating Disorder, is working on the website with Fixers, a national movement of young people 'fixing the future'.
The 21-year-old hopes to raise awareness of the condition and help people to understand what is happening to them.
Ria said: "I have always been overweight. When I was younger my family couldn't understand why I was putting on a stone every year because I was eating the same as my older sister who didn't have a weight problem.
"So my mum took me to see a dietician from the age of four. I was bullied every day at school, which only made the condition worse.
"B.E.D is psychological, and often I am trapped in a vicious cycle. My past problems make me angry inside, and I feel rubbish about my weight, so I binge. This only causes me to gain more weight.
"I find it difficult to do the things I want to do as I have a slipped disc and sciatica. I put on eight stone last year and more since. It stops me going out with friends and wanting to see people.
"Before I'd be the loud funny one and I'd be out all the time and now I can't bear it. The only people I'm confident with are family and close friends."
Ria found that talking through her problems in therapy really helped, and wanted to create a place where other people with the condition could chat and find support.
"I want to raise recognition of this illness and help those who feel out of control with food to overcome their problems," she said.
Ria's website can be found at www.defeatbinging.com, and she will update her Facebook page, www.facebook.com/b.e.dsupport, every week.
