As we both know often the full extent of this illness goes unseen to the outside world. This may be because you the sufferer cannot imagine telling anyone about the control that an eating disorder can dictate in every aspect of your life. The thoughts of sharing details about your illness may at first feel too overwhelming to bear. I offer you hope in overcoming the self-ridiculing voice of the eating disorder and support while on the road to reclaiming your life.
Dear Supporter of a Loved One,
Eating disorders impact millions of people directly and indirectly every year in the United States. This is a serious illness that jeopardizes health in many different ways, encompassing biological, psychological, and social factors. It has the potential to become life-threatening. It can be a very challenging time in the life of a parent, spouse, sibling, or other loved one.
I am here to help you in supporting your loved one through recovery from their eating disorder. When a loved one is challenged by an eating disorder, family life can become a roller coaster of emotions. As a supporter and care giver it is important that you take care of your own health during this difficult and stressful time. Please consider attending the Get Well Together free community support group.
