Anonymous Story Family and Friends

Thank you for helping me to understand these disorders. I just heard
this morning that a 13-year-old girl I know from church has been
admitted to the hospital for IV feeding -- She's been starving herself.
I'm praying for her, and I hope you'll say a word of prayer, too. I just
hope that whatever it is that changes in a person to tell them that they
have to eat prudently in order to stay alive -- whether her view of
herself, or her will to survive, or her sense that she is loved and
worthy of love (and self-love), or what I can't imagine -- I just pray
that this young girl finds that place, and makes that change, and soon.

Again, thanks for working to make this information available.
