You are in the right place.

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.

Hi clarex - I'm across the pond so can't help with finding support group there, but if you want to let us know a little about your situation, we can try to help.  Please feel free to ask all the questions you like. xx

Hi Clarex, welcome to this forum and sorry you had to be here. I'm also in Perth. If you d is being treated at PMH, there is a mother's group meeting every second month. As far as I know it's only for those being treated at PMH. However please feel free to email me by clicking on my name on the left hand side. It's important to know that you are not alone in this.

Best wishes!!!!
