Sending your family positive vibes right back.
One of my best friends battled this in college in the 1970's. She went down to 86 pounds and had to be hospitalized. She recovered and never relapsed.
I hope SB has the strength to continue the good fight. You are an amazing Mom and she has such a great support system.


That picture says it all.


'My picture of recovery--from anything--is not that you expect to be done for good with whatever it is you're recovering from, but that you are dealing positively and healthfully with your issues and you are leading the life you want to leave." This? So true. But there is always hope and I am so, so happy that SB is doing so well right now.

I am so very happy to read this and get an update on your wonderful daughter. Your family has been through a lot in the past year, but I never once doubted the outcome, as you are strong, committed, caring people who love each other a great deal. Virtual hugs to you all.

Thank you for this post. It helps immensely.

You have been on quite a journey. And that photo of SB is a wonderful picture of triumph!

Triumphant photograph, helpful advice, and honest reflection

I find this to be true in many, many ways:
"every single person on this Earth has some struggle--whether it shows to the rest of the world or not..." "...secrecy and shame are tied together in a way that increases suffering and prevents healing."


I hope that your story will get out to and help a lot of people.

So true. But there is always hope and I am so, so happy that SB is doing so well right now.

I have chills right now. Bravo to your family--I'm so glad you have so many reasons to celebrate!


This was a wonderful update. I am so happy that SB is doing well. Through the tough times we become stronger. I think your story will help others.


This story, and the way you've chronicled it, has made my heart very full, to the point that some overflow from it just leaked out my eyes.
