Asking for some prayers

My daughter Kiersten has been fighting anorexia for the past 7 years (she will be 19 on July 7).She has been in and out of treatment programs-out mostly because she quit. She has decided to check herself into an inpatient facility as medically she is declining rapidly-and she has decided enough is enough and she does not want this disease taking over her life anymore.She will be admitted tomorrow and is signing a contract that she may not leave for 20 days.I am asking everyone everywhere who believes in a higher power to pray that she follows through this time and will be able to overcome this demon. Thank you in advance.Much love and energy to you all,Vicki

thats tough, at least she is taking the step. I truly hope she sticks to it. alot of people don't realize the danger and health risk involved when someone is TRULY a hardcore "addicted" anorexic.

Oh Vicki!! Your girl looks so lovely in the pictures you posted, I never realized she had such a serious problem!! I have been close to someone who were going through the same thing at about the same age (she was 17), I have seen first hand how hard it can be. It takes lots and lots of strength and courage, even if she desperately wants to change, this illness can have an awful grip over her. To fight against it she also needs even more love and support than anyone can imagine, but I am sure she doesn't lack it from you and her entire family.
I really wish you and Kiersten all the best, and for the power to defeat this monster be with you. You guys will be in my thoughs!!

Big, big (((Hugs)))

Kudos to her for taking that big big step. Its not easy to admit you have a problem, and tougher still to find the correct help for it. Vicky, you and your family will be in my prayers. Hang in there, we are here to support you however we can.
