National Eating Disorder Week spotlights the need for Moms to be aware of the symptoms.

As many as 10 million females suffer from eating disorders in the U.S., and more than half of teenage girls use unhealthy weight control behaviors, according to the National Eating Disorders Association. Because of the secretiveness and shame associated with anorexia and bulimia, they often go undetected and untreated. We sat down with Susan, and her daughter, Christine, for a first-person account of teenage anorexia.

Thank you so much Christine for bringing this awful disease to people’s attention. Most people don’t understand this at all. Our daughter is now in her fourth month at a treatment center for anorexia and she seems to be doing really well. Your video clip shows me that there is hope that she will beat this. Congratulations in doing so well! Diane
