Anorexia is a subject close to my heart because as a teenager I suffered from it. I worked through the illness and made a complete recovery. This gives me tremendous insight and understanding into eating disorders and I am able to use this to help others make a full recovery too.
I also appreciate how difficult it is for parents with children who have an eating disorder. It is to you that I am reaching out and to let you know there is hope and there are alternative ways to look to recovering from this illness.
