The video interview with the 12-yr old in recovery from anorexia nervosa is very interesting to me. It's almost a replica of my own feelings, when, as a 12-yr old I was also diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. She describes:

"I felt different, alienated..."

Yep, that was exactly how I felt.
I felt I was very different to other girls of my age. I had none of their interests - in fashion, make-up, going out etc. Instead I was interested in 'nerdy' stuff and teased for being a 'geek'.

I really related to the difficulties of arriving at university with an eating disorder and thought that this post - - might add some personal insight into the debate.

In my third year, I was sectionned, and my university allowed me to complete this year on a part time basis. This was very important to me: I thought that I wouldn't go back if I left; yet I couldn't manage a full time degree.

I imagine that it's hard to come up with a policy that works for everyone, but I would hate to think about what would have happened had I been forced to leave my degree and fallen totally under the eating disorder's control.

I like the old version of Sunday smorgasbord better.

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
