It is so great to see where you have started a year ago and what a warrior you are today, Ellesmum.
When new parents here ask me what thread to read first on ATDT I normally send them to yours to make them see that we all felt helpless and exhausted at the start and what that could lead to when we learn to fight.

You are a great role model to all in the dark days and definitivly earn the "warrior of the year" award!
I am glad to be able to call you my friend today and so thankful that this damn disease has brought us all together! So at least there was something positive in having ED in the house - I have some wonderful friends now! 😍

Thank you for being there.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you Tina, I remember so well when you first gave me advice I thought ‘but I can’t do this, I’m not strong enough’. 

It’s been a hell of a year but you’re right, I’m thankful to have ‘met’ you too,  I wrote a long post on social media earlier saying that the positive part of this is having got to know so many awesome people. 

I never want to relive last summer but the mind does filter out the bad bits and I remember some sunny days too.  

D sings every day now,  makes plans, she still feels low often, we still have bad days but far fewer, life feels something approaching normal. When AN starts roaring I have plenty of ammunition now.
