Just wanting to wish you all a really great start to 2016. I hope that all our sick kids will have a much better year this year. I hope that 2016 will give all the parents and caregivers strength to continue the fight against ED, increased compassion for our kids who suffer from it and freedom from constant anxiety and guilt.  For all of you, whether you have already been on this journey for years or are just beginning, I hope that this year there will be one of great progress towards healing and recovery for your child, your family and yourself.

I hope for so much, for my d and for all those other kids suffering and fighting EDs.  It is sad that it is an illness that is so often measured in years, and we live in hope that this time next year things will be much better. 

Happy New Year to all

Thank you, and Happy New Year to all too. To a happier and healthier new year for everyone.
D diagnosed restrictive AN June 2010 age 13.5. Weight restored July 2012. Relapse and now clawing our way back. Treatment: multiple hospitalisations and individual and family therapy.
Hoping that 2016 is the year I kick ED to the curb for good, and that my daughter can get on with her life.  We are *this close* (really) and I look forward to being done.  May it be that way for all of us here.
