I'm opening an informal video/phone opportunity today as an experiment. Typing is great, but if you want to drop by, have coffee or tea, maybe hang out on my front porch with me and others who drop by for the next few hours, let's have some real-time conversations on how things are going for families this week.

If you call in by phone, or click in on your browser, you'll see and hear me and anyone else on the line. It will not be public, it will not be recorded. You can tell your story, and listen to others. We can't solve one anothers' problems, but we can listen and help one another feel less isolated.

Here are the details:
Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Would have loved to join.  Hope it went well and you try another one soon.  
Mom of either pre-diagnosis or non-ed underweight 12 yoa (as of March 2018) kid here to learn how to achieve weight gain.  BMI steadily in the mid 12's for nearly her entire life.  Born 2006. UPDATE:  April 2018 diagnosed ARFID, based solely on weight being less than 75% of Ideal Body Weight.  Mildly picky, but mostly the problem is a volume/early satiety issue, along with abdominal discomfort and chronic constipation, all present since birth.  UPDATE:  July 2019 diagnosed with PANS. Dr. said likely started first PANS episode at less than 1 or 2 years of age.  On long-term daily prophylactic antibiotics. BMI now about 16 after period of intense refeeding prior to PANS dx,  followed by stagnation as we sort out what is next. FWIW ED-D is a fraternal twin and we have no other kids.

Scheduled another one for 6pm UTC (London Time)!!

If you're interested in a real-time informal chat in a few hours with other parents/caregivers, I've opened up a special Zoom line. It is not public, and will not be recorded. Just a way to fight isolation with connection in real time for families. Come have a cup of tea and share your stories with me and others who drop by!
