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.

Tooth, I have just clicked onto the link at the top and it's a case of "don't get me started....!!!!!" I wish I'd had this to thrust in front of our treatment team when it was THEY who were saying "He has to WANT to recover" and all that stuff whereas I, the parent, was sitting there gobsmacked knowing he hadn't a hope of WANTING to recover. So we waited and waited and waited for him to "want to recover"... de da de da... Thank you so much for pointing this out. Too late for us but hopefully very helpful to others. xxxx

These resources are great. I understand this now that we are 9 months on and 3 month WR , but at the beginning I was desperate to find a way to get her to understand. I felt that if she understood then my fear could be allayed a bit and so she would help me to help her. I know I was not able to understand what was happening at the time as our lives were filled with a lot of stress. It is only through this journey and time and looking back that I get it. I am not sure if i had read all of this before that i would have been better prepared. How do we "get it" right at the beginning?

Hi Batty,
So true!!!!!!!
Yes I really hope this will help others, it is a common problem with clinicians lack of understanding as well.


Hi there scaredmom,
There is so much to learn always with this horrible illness.It really is a steep learning curve.
I do not know anybody that got this right at the beginning.
There is so much to get our heads around, it takes time to grasp it all!
