Bumping this for ED awareness week.

Tonight my D asked me what she could do for Ed awareness week. We chatted awhile and then she said " I have been trying to put your poem to music but every time I start I cry. I'm going to do it though. " I told her she's my hero and how brave she is and that she fought like hell for so long... She said " Thankyou mom. I love you."

Keep feeding. Keep talking. Love to you all!

Son,DX with AN, (purging type) in 2015 ,had 4 months immediate inpatient,then FBT at home since. He is now in strong recovery, (Phase 3 ) 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.

It's not her birthday- it's in May. I wrote this a couple of years ago. I asked a mod to unlock it bc I wanted someone to be read it. It still makes me cry.
