Boys get eating disorders, too, just like girls. In 2009 my 15-year old son developed anorexia. Now, aged 23 and studying for a Masters Degree at university, he is thankfully recovered. This blog is our story.
Fantastic! Both of you were so good - and incredibly brave of 'Ben'. You must be really proud of him. And the points you made came across so clearly.
You were both great! I'm glad you emphasized the difficulty getting GPs to take it seriously and accessing treatment. And I'm really impressed by Ben's courage. It's things like these that can really help other boys (or girls) and parents out there who might be just noticing a problem, or feeling alone, or not knowing where to get help, etc...Well done!
