Tell your family to read this article!

I just saw this article in the news items Google serves into my sidebar and it bears drawing some attention to it.

You know at Christmas and other family times how you want to say something to your family but it's so difficult to know what? And how feeling their watchful eyes upon you makes you feel even more stressed which in turn makes you more likely to try and conform to normal eating and then eventually either freak out or start doing the ED - and generally ruins the good time anyway?

Here is the definitive article on what ground rules you should lay for your family. Sometimes it's hard to know what our triggers are or how to describe them - this article gives you all the notes you need to navigate the difficult time. If necessary just send the link to your mum or print her a copy.

Here's a link that discussed in some detail the physical things that you are doing to your body, not just the generic usual things people might throw at you when saying what you are doing is bad for you but actually goes into discussing the fight you feel with urges and why they are happening. I hope you find this interesting.

I read that the Dalai Lama has said that he has a good relationship with Jesus. So I wish you a wonderful holiday celebrating the birthday of one of the Dalai Lama's friends.
