Hi Kali,
That is a fantastic idea.

I saw this the other day, I was so disgusted  and triggered that I just could not face responding until now.
I am so sorry that you had to endure this abuse.
I was a working mum and I regret that! 
I see now that you wrote her an email, and I am so glad you did.I was hoping you would!
I found out recently that my 4 of my Husbands  cousins (all male) had AN in their teens, one nearly died.  
Maybe she would like a link to this!

Son,DX with AN, (purging type) in 2015 ,had 4 months immediate inpatient,then FBT at home since. He is now in strong recovery,  and Living life to the full, like a "normal"[biggrin] teen. 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.

Just wanted to update that my cousin replied to my email that I am "childish". No excuses and nothing else.
I will not spend any more power on that.
Strange ED world...
What keeps me up is thinking about all those faces of "professionals" when somewhere in future hundreds of parents will ask for FBT in Germany...
I think I must collect the few available information in German and post it in a new post.
It is really time for a change here.

Hi Tina72,

Ugh.  I am so sorry that your cousin reacted that way.  Ouch.  You didn't deserve that.  You tried your best to explain the situation to your cousin and it didn't work.  You can move forward with a clear conscience.  Maybe at some point your cousin will come around on his/her own.  Now onto different issues.  Onward and upward!

I am so glad and excited that you and other forum members are going to do something about the lack of info available in German!  You are inspiring!

DD diagnosed with anorexia at 14; FBT at home with the help of psychologist and medical dr; 3+ years later and doing well (knock on wood)

Tina- couldn’t have put it better than EdAction- you are inspiring. I totally agree that you shouldn’t spend any more time or mental energy on your cousin. It’s truly her loss.
