The At Home With Eating Disorders Conference 2017 was a great success. To help all those out who for whatever reason couldn't make it, the videos of the full conference are available for viewing. 

Thanks so much to those who have done this. This conference was organised by FEAST combined with the Butterfly Foundation.

D became obsessed with exercise at age 9. Started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017. She is back to her old happy self and can eat anything put in front of her.
