13 yo d started to eat "healthy" september 2018, she had a growth spur a bit later, followed by tummy bug. She started restricitng breakfast and school lunch in january 2019 (that we know). We are refeeding at home (succesfully I think) since the beginning of march.
I have found inner strenght, patience and compassion that i did not know I had. Never retreat, never surrender
Just keep feeding

Great article, thanks for sharing PurpleRain (I'm sure I'm not the only one who hears Prince's song when seeing your name 😁)
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9 and 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.

Ha ha yep I love that song and my hubby used to call me that because I like the colour (purple) and it also has something to do with my family name.

Thanks for sharing that! There are some great posts on the blog there as well.  Some great insight - hoping I can use some of it to help d continue to progress. Such a frustrating disease.
