Eating disorders can be very scary and cause a great deal of stress and distress within a family. Anyone who has lived with a sufferer knows well just how disruptive these particular kinds of illness can be, both to the person suffering and those who are trying to support them.
It is usually difficult to understand what has gone wrong, and even harder to know what to do for the best.
