As many of you may recall, I lost my older sister Anne two years ago last Sunday. She was a victim of an illness that is still so misunderstood. We still don't understand what causes the disorder and why the victims take the illness as far as they do.
No one in my family knew that Anne was developing anorexia when she was a teen until it was deeply embedded in her brain. My parents did get her to a hospital and she was on the path to recovery. The trouble is, the thoughts were already there and she relapsed on and off for 25 years.
