When doctors will treat EDs as serious as cancer one day we will have a big party here on FEAST.
Thank you for posting that, toothfairy.

It reminds us that educating the medical world and the public is what is needed. Cancer is in the news all the time. Fundraisers daily for cancers. 
"Marketing" of the illness to the professionals and the public is the key. Raise awareness, speak out! Here we are the "converted " and WE know, but those outside of ED/ATDT need to know.
