I know, I know, I’m way overdue for a blog post. The next real post I’ll be putting up this week—I promise.
But first I need your help. I’m working on a presentation entitled From Meal Plans to Weighing Patients: Knowing When and How to Change Direction Based on Patient Readiness for an upcoming eating disorder conference, the Renfrew Center Foundation Conference. And I’d like you to have a voice!
This is for all of you—whether you’ve struggled with Binge Eating Disorder, bulimia or anorexia—or don’t quite meet the criteria for any of these. (And, family member-readers feel free to add your 2 cents, too). Consider a brief response to the following:
- What words or actions by a health care professional helped you/your loved one shift toward change?
- What advice would you like to share with healthcare providers so that they don’t repeat the mistakes they made in your/your loved one’s treatment? Specifically, regarding being weighed, providing nutrition recommendations, setting limits on physical activity, or involving family in treatment.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
