Dear ATDT,

Our ed D is now married!!!

Just home from the one of the best nights of life our ED D who has been in recovery now for several years got married today. Some thing that we wondered if it would happen.

Just home from the celebrations. So happy & so proud. Our D did a six week plan organise & coordinate a wonderfull event that was an engagement party that was a suprise wedding.

This is my D that experienced a battle with ed from the age of 13 until nearly 25 now at 28 has left her ed behind and is venturing out on a married life without ed.

ATDT has helped me to help my D. Thanks everyone!!

This is possible for you all.

Warm & Kind thoughts and best wishes

From a forum user, who has changed their name twice, and is about to do this again, whose "story of hope" is probably overdue (!!) I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart. What a tremendous achievement for you all As the parents - I salute you! You must know, somewhere, not that deep inside you, that YOU did this .I hope some day this will be our story too. I actually think it will be. Maseltof! Xxx

Congratulations to all. 

The normality of weddings seems so far off when in the trenches, and it is fantastic to see that these things do happen.

While wife and I did a lot our D was the one who did the hardest work.

For the first years of our D's illness I was a sideline dad as I worked away a lot. It was not untill Jan Clarke the mother of Bronte Cullis educated us about ed's and the way to help & educated & showed our D what was needed. Our D then found a great GP psychologist & dietician so its been a team effort.

Then since early 2013 this forum & F.E.A.S.T has helped me.

Thanks to you all for your kind words.

Dear berry75,

Thanks.

Yes Bronte and her family did it very tough but because of Jan's & her husband's efforts Bronte has been recovered for a heap of years and now Bronte is a mum herself and lives very close to her mom & dad. Recovery is possible and food is the medicine of recovery!

The day was perfect a beautiful West Aussie autum (fall) afternoon/evening in Fremantle, ceremony in Fremantle Maritime Museum in front of the huge western window overlooking the Fremantle harbour entrance with two famous yachts as a back drop, Australia II (first ever yacht to take the America's cup off the US of A) & Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour (tripple solo unaided non stop circumnavigation of the world). Then a reception about 750 metres away at a resturaunt over looking bathers beach on the southern side of Fremantle harbour.

So our recovery story/journey was started because of another ed mother, score is ed mums 2 ed zero!

Just realised as I am typing this the significance of where our D chose to be married, right between two symbols of battles against significant & seemingly insurmountable odds!! Also at the harbour where her great, great uncle, my dad's uncle was Chief Harbour Master 100 years ago.

Wow the wedding and location sound perfect.Lovely to have the family significance.I think the Cullis family were the first to show what an eating disorder was really like,I know when my daughter was first diagnosed Brontes story was the first thing that came to mind.To be honest it was thing that both frightened me and motivated me to help my daughter get betterThank you for sharing you good news.
