I have seen the devastating effects of eating disorders on so many young lives. Watching a loved one starve themselves is torture and trying to understand how someone can do this to themselves can be so difficult and frustrating. I find hearing a sufferer’s story can help us so much to understand how this disease can take over, distorting a person’s reality and robbing them of their life.
I think Kristen’s story will bless all of us who read it. Thank you Diana for letting us know she was posting on this important topic this week.
edited to add: Kristen’s Mom Dawn is posting her perspective as well. What a rare gift to have both stories. Don’t miss this.
