Thanks for the update, Toothfairy, it’s so heartening to read these stories of recovery. It’s been an eye opener for me, I had no idea that calorie levels had to be so high for so long, or that such a level of vigilance had to be maintained. Can I ask how your son feels about the time he was in the grip of the eating disorder, or is it something he doesn’t like to talk about? I’m only asking to try to gain a better understanding of how my daughter might be feeling. On a different note, I think it was you who posted an extract from a new book by Lauren Muhlheim? It’s a great book and a welcome addition to my ED collection, so thanks for that! WM68 x

This was amazing to read. I understand the length of time this will take but I don't think my husband has any clue!!! I'm going to print it out and show him.

Thank you.
I would like to add that we now have a great relationship, & he has very little memory of being so ill & the re-feeding horror. His lowest bmi was 16.8 & he was only restricting for a few months before we caught it.
He has thanked me for all that I have done & said that even when he hated me, he felt comfort in knowing that “ I had his back”, even though he couldnt show it.
Keep Feeding everybody!
