  1. I love your blog, you are a really good writer!!! Thanks for being here and for the support and hope you bring!!

    Greetings from M

  2. As someone who has always viewed anxiety (and anxiety disorders) as being at the root of her own experience of anorexia nervosa, I especially like this paper: “The comorbidity between eating disorders and anxiety disorders: prevalence in an eating disorder sample and anxiety disorder sample”.

    The behaviours of anorexia often bring temporary relief of anxiety, so it is hardly surprising that people get stuck in a dangerous pattern of behaviours!

  3. Some of these ‘bites’ are almost 3 years old.
    In October, we lost our brilliant and amazing girl to this horrendous disease.
    Families need current information. We need good information that we can offer to professionals and families dealing with this disease.
    When I was searching for help for my daughter, I contacted you and you told me how busy you were and said that you would get back to me. It never happened. I get it, you really were quite busy.
    We had to search and find the BEST people for her. We did find them with difficulty-yes, we are angry because we lost our precious gift from God, but as a family we want to work for ED family support and information.
    Everyone needs to be on the same page and working towards the same goal. That is what is missing-the end goal of health no matter the organization or the path to achieve that. We need to set labels aside and keep our faces towards the ‘light’.
