Talking about food, eating, body image, and weight
Wow I am pleasantly surprised at the approach of dealing with anorexia in the story. There definitely needs to be a change in how society deals with it.
Harriet, Just finished your book last night — in a one day, glued-to-the-page swoop.It's a beautiful, painful, heart-wrenching, hopeful work! I really appreciate your perspective on eating disorders, and that the illness is not the person. A very important distinction that I had lost, or perhaps never grasped, all these years. I also appreciate your advocacy for health care that covers eating disorders and mental health issues. Thank you for sharing your family's profound, life-changing, experience.
Thanks, Ashley, and Drew. I'm glad the book meant something to you. That's why I write. :)
And how NOT to do the family treatment:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1321719/Mother-girl-diet-age-two.htmlBetter for mum to stop stuffing her face, no?
Clair, What makes you think Mom is "stuffing her face"? Being fat does not equal "stuffing your face."
