“Fat Nat… fat Nat. Those words will haunt me forever. I never knew then that upon hearing such words screamed in the school yard with me at the receiving end would damage me for life. I was barely 6 years old when some child at my school realised that fat rhymed with Nat. My name is Natalie but people called me lots of names, shortened usually in the Australian way. Nell, lady Nell, Natlie, Natty and of course Nat where some kind names I was known by.”
Earlier this month we talked about Eating Disorders to raise awareness. Just because we finished the Eating Disorder Awareness Week series does not mean the conversation is over! Natalie from the blog, “Our Parallel Connection” shared her story here. It is definitely worth the read!
