For Friends and Family

This book is helpful for those who are innocent bystanders to the disease. Many sufferers of eating disorders have a highly distorted concept of what people are saying versus what the person is meaning. One of my times in treatment, I had a nutritionist who said “You are doing good!” Whenever she weighed me after a few weeks. In my head, that meant that I was gaining weight and getting big…no matter what the reality was.

Many times non-sufferers mean well when they offer the disordered compliments of looking “healthy” or “well”….but inside the disordered, it is like a knife jabbed directly in our disordered hearts.
