So, we are officially 1 year WR (back to her growth curve plus cushion). D isdis pretty good with food, she sometimes prepares snacks and eats them semi supervised (because we are all at home due to lockdown). She had been able to eat morning snack unsupervised for a while before covid. We had some issues about clothes last week (dad's t-shirts that she used to wear everyday and then stopped, resurfaced I guess because she has been mostly in PJ's). Lockdown has made somethings harder, less (almost none) social interaction, less leverage (I hadn't needed until t-shirt incident), and now I'm starting to worry whatiwhat this keeps going much longer? she is starting to get restless, academic year is now over. She did so well last summer, nearly WR she had a month of drama summer course, she had her snack on her own, met new people, she was so looking forward to go again this summer. I mean is literally nothing for the next few (?)months. She is now at my mom's place along with little brother. Nice change of scenery for them, nice break for me, so I'm making the most of this couple of days and she sounds happy. But honestly, I thought we would be in a much better place, because of course I didn't see covid coming. it's so unfair that on top of ED she has to miss even more of her teen years because of covid/lockdown. I know of course that literally everybody is missing things and that many here have kids that have missed a lot. I just feel sad and I worry. My youngest is not really suffering so much the lockdown, he is 10 and happy to be with mom and dad, but my ED D is 14, soon to be 15, this is so not a fun life for a teenager.
Sorry for the pity party, she is doing well and I'm happy about it, just feeling a bit down today (probably because I have time to pay attention to myself for a change).Love this place, is a lifeline!
13 yo d started to eat "healthy" September 2018, she had a growth spurt a bit later, followed by tummy bug. She started restricting breakfast and school lunch in January 2019 (that we know). We succesfully refed at home.
I have found inner strenght, patience and compassion that I did not know I had.
Never retreat, never surrender
