i always look forward to sundays. :) great post and info. i looked up clinical trial and now i know how because of this. i'm happy for the boy who was treated for anorexia but sometimes i get so frustrated that people can be treated once and be ok for life. i'd like to see an honest 10 year follow up with that boy and all others who claim their anorexia is just 'gone' after treatment.

About Me

My photo
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.
