I live in the UK, with my husband. Our daughter is now well and independent. She was a happy, well-adjusted kid until shortly after her tenth birthday, when she spiralled into restricting anorexia. Eleven months in hospital restored her health, but couldn't shift her anorexic mindset. Once she was home, we learned a lot and made fast progress.
Since our lives have returned to normal, I have been supporting struggling parents.
The resources I offer go beyond my story and my views. I have gathered contributions from other parents, children in recovery, and from experts in eating disorders and in nonviolent communication.
Eva Musby is my pen name.
