What has ED “given” me, her mother? ED has given me a state of 24/7 grief for my child and the HELL she experiences every single day of her life. ED has given me a self- doubt that I could have done something different to prevent this or could have recognized it earlier. For God’s sake, I am a pediatrician! I fix and heal children! And never have I seen a disease this horrific. ED has given me a black hole of hopelessness and helplessness at times that I feel I will never escape. ED has given me a sense of fear and terror that nearly has paralyzed me. ED has given me sleepless nights wondering if I will get a call from the treatment facility saying she hasn’t awakened from sleep. ED has given me more tears and sadness than I thought was possible. ED has given me an anger I have never known, swallowing my whole being up at times as I think of where my precious daughter has gone.
What has ED “given” her twin brother? ED has given him a sense of loss that no 17 year old should have to experience. It has given him a loneliness of being ripped away from the one human being he has been with since the moment of conception. It has given him a sense of anger and confusion that he simply cannot put into words. It has given him a sense of guilt he cannot do anything to help her.
Look at all the “giving “ED has done.
Through this hell we have been traveling in, I have realized there is something left…and that is hope and resolve…and one more day…
I will continue this fight with every ounce of energy, effort, and strength that I have. I will NOT let ED win.
I WILL get my daughter back…she is a fighter and the bravest soul I know fighting this undisputed demon.
Do you hear me, ED?
I WILL MARCH BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT TAKE HER. YOU WILL NOT WIN. SHE WILL RETURN…
