Dear all
I hope you and your loved ones are safe, well and staying as positive as you can in these trying times.
I was fearing the worst for my D as we  faced life in a COVID19 world.
Her mood was darkening and I could see the possibility of cracks in her recovery, in which she has made amazing life changing progress over the last six months (which in itself is quite a story for another day).
It's been a  long 10+ year road for us.
This morning she announced she was going to start writing again to help those who are also struggling at this time.
It's early days but I wanted to share with you the start. Maybe it just may be useful to someone you know.
I hope you can support by following this wonderful initiative.  
Best wishes

Thank you! I feel her blog will be very helpful to many. 

She has identified a big need in the community and  her blog will likely  be a source of strength for those who read her blog.

I am glad she is doing well now. You must be so pleased. And well done to you for helping her along the way!!

Amazing, thanks for sharing!
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
keep feeding
