My thoughts as our family battles anorexia with our 11-year old son.
Wednesday, December 26, 2007
N is restricting a bit today. He played with a friend this morning. When we suggested that he call his new friend from school, he said that he felt too self conscious. He has skipped both of his snacks today.
Our 11-year old son dropped 20 pounds in just two months. That was the beginning of an unexpected, difficult and emotional journey for our family. At the four month mark he stopped losing weight -- but continues his obsession with food and body image.
