Hurray for you both! And thanks for posting on this - parents and clinicians need to know this this over and over again, because doubts keep creeping in during the bad moments.
I love what this daughter said about her mother: "She carried me on her shoulders when it seemed anorexia would drown me"(BBC radio 4 Mental Health awards)


Thanks for sharing, beutiful and commend you both.
For us FBT worked well for our daughter and we have a wonderful relationship, and for mothers day I received the most beutiful card from her, thanking me for never giving up and always being there for her.
Yes I must say to parents, FBT is not easy, but I believe it saved our daughters life.
We had to change our life to save her life, as we could not juggle all. Putting our daughters health came 1st, my job was secondary (did not work for 4 years), as well as our social life, my husband changed his hours at work to go to appointments with us, and our life was put on hold but I can honestly say it was a commitment that I will never regret.
The team at Sick Kids Hospital here in Toronto, gave us the tools and we had to stick by them.
Thankyou and never give up ,


Her message to you is the affirmation every parent craves, at some point in life. I'm so glad she articulated that she SEES you and all you've done for her. And thank you for continuing my understanding of the issue and approaches surrounding it.

I loved this when I saw her message to you on Facebook. Thank you both for being so open with your story, your time, your incredible talents, and your will to help others. You make a difference!


This is awesome! It's so good to hear. Warm hugs.


The amount of love in this post made my hurt hurt, in an awesomely good way. You are both so incredibly lucky.
