"JUST EAT IT!!"
For those of you in need of some gallows humour while enduring the frustrations of refeeding, 


I wouldn't be surprised if whoever created this was one of us!
Those of you who know me will know I'm all into compassion and empathy for the horrible distress our children are feeling. I think it's good to also let rip in the privacy of our own headphones.

Love Weird Al. Very funny, Eva!

If you want non ed related comic relief, this is my fave:
The ebay song.

Hi Tina,

That is so sweet of you to ask!! Thank you so much!!! Last night was terrible - lots of emotion - but today - well, WOW!  Not sure how you feel about musicals - but I love the song Tomorrow (from Annie) and this is why - things can change.  Today we met with the physiologist - she is 3.5 lbs from her goal, and is less than 4% points from where she needs to be for body fat.  She got permission to exercise, and will meet next week to have a program designed for her so she can build up her muscles again and do the things she loves.  She is out tonight doing some of the physical things she loves - and then went out to eat with the gang.  I know it's a roller coaster - we have not told anyone about our daughter's condition (her choice -although some of her close friends know)- and i was just thinking how wonderful it would be to share this great news with someone - and then I checked my email, and saw your note.  Thank you - it really meant a lot to me to be asked - especially by someone who "gets it."  I hope you and your daughter are having a good day - and that she is continuing well on her recovery. 

Not sure if you have any other children.  It has been very frightening for the siblings - so having something as normal as tonight is just great for everyone.

Thank you so much, Tina.  Please let me know how you and your family are doing.

Love those!  I can totally relate to them both! My non-ED d claims that her generation doesn't use eBay - it's the next generation up - us.  Seems weird to me - I wonder what experience others have with that.

Anyway, here's my contribution (below).  At first, I thought it wasn't working properly or my sound was off or something so you have to be patient:
