"My daughter is recovering from an eating disorder. I must admit this has been a complete shock for all of us. As much of a hold I felt I had on my girls with talks, quality time, etc. the truth is we all missed it. I still struggled with accepting it even after she admitted it until her doctors showed me the lab results. Due to excessive binging and purging her potassium levels reached dangerous levels which eventually lead to organ failure. This has been extremely scary and all I keep asking myself is, "How did I miss it?, How as a mom could I not see the pain and loneliness she was enduring not to mention the self hate.?" I swear, we spent every night together talking, watching television, going on walks together, playing with the dog, grocery shopping, etc. I just do not know what happened or how I missed it. I really thought I was in tune to my kids and their needs; clearly I was wrong. It just goes to show that eating disorders do not discriminate against age, race, or gender. 

There is a huge gap in understanding and recognizing what an eating disorder patient looks like.
I am reaching out to you because National Eating Disorder Awareness week is February 21- 27. There is such a misconception of this illness and Dallas is very new in treating this disorder. Doctors and emergency room staff members have so much to learn. When visiting the National Eating Disorder http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/ site I learned that there are events held throughout the country but for whatever reason, Dallas acknowledges nothing that week or any other time of year for that matter. My goal is to create something that helps families and the people that are suffering from it so that we can make others aware and prevent unnecessary deaths. I literally could have woken up one morning to a dead child, how terrifying do you think that is?"

UPDATED March 1st!! We did it! Here are a few pics we wanted to share!!
