Hi all

Do not know what to say anymore
but want to reassure everyone my daughter is alive and well......just in case people were concerned

No weight gain as such but not as lowest weight either

no longer sees GP or any mental health or medical personnell

No lived at home but with her father last 12 weeks
This is due to the fact I became very ill.........took it's toll after 3 years as anyone who knows me will not be shocked by!!!

been reading a few of my friends on here updates and am relieved on the whole you are all doing well...thank God

taking life day by day at present..back at work last 4 weeks which helps enormously
had to take 7 weeks off for rest etc etc!!!!

miss you all..
hugely heatbroken that my child past the 3 year recovery mark and never moved higher than 14 BMI but very grateful she is not her usual 12

keep the faith all..........

huge hugs xxxx

Floating!!!!!

So glad (!) to hear from you!!  Phew, huge sigh of relief that you and your d are somewhat OK.  I was so worried when we didn't hear from you - I understand of course, but geez was I worried.

Also glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself, at least a little.  

And yes, 14 is bad, but still much better than 12.

Please know that we are always here for you. xx

Hugs,

Torie

Dear Floating,
How great it is to hear from you, there has not been a week gone by that I did not think of you, your D and your family.
I was very worried, thanks for the update.
I am so sorry you are still in this terrible situation, also I am not surprised you have been ill.

I hope you have had some rest, and as Torie said,
We are here for you.

This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine.

Another who is relieved floating!

My own d took ten years to recover and was at a low bmi for many years - yes 14 is low but it is less likely to be life-threatening than 12.   It is a small but positive step in the right direction.

What is your d doing with her life?  Is she studying or working?  If you can keep things going along normally on that level, that will be a huge help.  A desire for a 'normal' life can be a big motivator.

We are all so relieved she is alive and that there has been an improvement, however small it seems.   Have faith - she will get through this.

Floating, like many others, I have been checking in to see if there has been an update from you.

I am sorry to hear that you have been so poorly, but this all takes such a toll on us, and you really have endured so much. Look after yourself. So glad to hear that your D is sort of OK - I have been frightened for you, yet very hopeful.

Stay strong, Floating. Let us help where we can. Kx

Floating,  I have tears in my eyes as I read your post.  I think of you and your D often and was very worried for you both.  I am happy to hear from you and that you are doing somewhat OK but also so angered by the little support you are getting from the medical professionals.   If there is anything we can do to help, from getting Neil from redfm back on your situation to emailing medical personnel, please don't hesitate to ask.    I will keep you all in my prayers.  Please take care of yourself.  I have faith that one day your D will recover.

So glad to see your post.  I, like many on here, were worried about you and your daughter and the silence.  I'm glad you are feeling a bit better and that your daughter is holding her own.  I will continue to keep all of you in my thoughts and continue to hope for progress and good health.  Thank you for updating us.

So glad to see you posting floating.  14 is certainly better than 12.  Any movement on getting her into treatment?

I'm so glad you took care of your own health however it came about.  You can't help your daughter if you are sick too!!

I am so relieved to see your post floating.  I too have been thinking of you and your family very often.  For some reason I get an Irish news feed on my Facebook with updates about your country.
I keep it on my feed and therefore think of you.  I am very sorry to hear you have been ill but I am afraid caregiver stress can cause all sorts of health havoc...another topic in itself.  Just relieved to hear you and your d are still managing as best you can under the circumstances.  So, so  happy to hear from you...take care....be well.  Keep us posted and know you have continued support from parents here on forum.

Hi Floating, was so happy to come on forum and see you had posted. I think of you so often as our daughters are around the same age. You and your d have had such a difficult time good news that you are feeling a little bit better and that your d is with her dad to give you a break to help regroup . This illness is so vile and recovery takes so long and we can only hope our children / adults will recover. . A bmi of 14 is still solow but better than 12. Please let us know if we can do anything to help you.
