Vicki, you most definately have prayers from me!! She has admitted the disease and has asked for help. By signing the contract, she is showing that she is ready to fight and conquer it this time. Keep us posted on how she is doing. Tell her she has people from all over the world praying for her recovery!! God bless you Vicki and Kiersten!!

I can't tell all of you how much I appreciate your love and prayers.The tears I have now are from all the positive energy you have sent us instead of the tears of helplessness of watching another child of mine struggle in this life.This is going to be yet another rough and bumpy road for this family but, I am grateful I can come here for support.Thak you all again. With much lov and energy, Vicki

This is such a hard problem. I know someone who fought bulemia. Both anorexia and bulemia are eating disorders caused by psycological pressures. I have prayed, and will continue to pray on her behalf, and on yours as well. It's so hard watching someone you love go through such destructive behavior, and know that they are suffering. I wish I had the answers, but each of us must find ways to fight our own demons, with the help of, as you said it, a Higher Power.

I don't believe in luck, so I won't wish it upon her. Instead, I pray that she will have the strength and courage to battle both the anorexia, and the societal pressures, real or imagined, that are the root cause of this behavior.

The first step is admitting there's a problem, which she did.
That's great ! I'm sending you thoughts and prayers. I really believe she will overcome this obstacle in her life.

(((Goodweed))) I'm not much of a believer in luck either .I believe we all have a journey here that we chose to travel but, sometimes we get off course or life throws us a curve and we have to choose a path to follow- sometimes it's the wrong path- after the death of my oldest son almost 7 years ago- Kiersten chose to control or deal with the situation by starving herself- it has taken this long for her to decide to get choose a less destructive path. As much as I have hate seeing her suffer these past 7 years - it ultimately had to be her choice to deal with this situation in not such a destructive manner.I so much appreciate your wishes of courage and strength to get the proper treatment for a more positive journey.Thnak you so much for your kind words. Love and energy, Vicki

Thank you Middie-she is an extraordinary young woman-she works with handicapped children on a volunteer basis.She reaches out to those less fortunate and makes their days brighter- and up until now - she couldn't help herself.
