Recently I saw a 25 year old woman who had experienced bulimia for about 6 years. Her focus was increasingly on her body weight.
She lived at home with her family. When I asked her about her family she reported that she was very close to her mother.
My latest book ‘You Can Fix Your Family’ is now available on Amazon for US$9.00:
In New Zealand you can purchase ‘You Can Fix Your Family’ from the Woman’s Bookshop
Greetings to you:
I need to apologize, our blog has been quiet for some months now. I have been completing a book for families, “You Can Fix Your Family”, which should be out in a few weeks. You’ll see my notices on that and a special price for members and US members of this community.
I was interviewed on TV9 News today.
Eating disorders are not voluntary. Nobody would choose to have anorexia, bulimia, or overeating.
Many people ask how they can get their loved one who is suffering from an eating disorder into treatment.
We have written many times on this site about the link between conflict avoidance and eating disorder symptoms. Often people experience a sudden desire to binge or purge when they are in social situations where they feel that they just don’t have a voice. (more…)
We all know and have fought with trying to be “perfect”, and the paralysis that this can lead to. Never being satisfied with anything other than “perfect”, can lead to constantly feeling like a failure and feelings of hopelessness.
Hi my name is Mel, I am a over eater!!!
I never knew there was help for this, I need help to get past my sick and twisted love and need for food.
I don’t if this is the right place to write this but here goes anyway. We live in Hamilton and have an 11 yr old niece who has been diagnosed with anorexia, we are looking for anyone who has been (or is going) through the same thing to talk and share ideas.
At the moment we are receiving care through mental health, their main concern is weight gain before we start on anything else but a nutritionist and psychologist(?) are next.
No one we know has been through something like this and we are feeling very lonely and isolated. We would greatly appreciate any contact (support).
