The confluence of the coronavirus pandemic, ongoing economic upheaval, and massive socio-political turbulence has a daily impact on all aspects of our lives. Our relationships are affected, as well as our jobs, school, financial security, health, mood, sleep, and even our own identity or sense of self.

Great blog thanks!
13 yo d started to eat "healthy" September 2018, she had a growth spurt a bit later, followed by tummy bug. She started restricting breakfast and school lunch in January 2019 (that we know). We succesfully refed at home.
I have found inner strenght, patience and compassion that I did not know I had.
Never retreat, never surrender
keep feeding
