Dirty Laundry?

A mother I know has started  The "Dirty Laundry" Project in response to a friend who called it "dirty laundry" to discuss her daughter's eating disorder on Facebook. I am posting this picture as my profile picture all this week to show solidarity and say very clearly that no illness should be treated as shameful or to be hidden. Stigma only serves the purpose of isolation and lack of information. The person who should have been ashamed is the one who thinks talking about illness is something to hide. Hooray for the Dirty Laundry Project and boo hiss to the haters!
