As caregivers to our children who have eating disorders, we are under immense pressure, and have very little holistic help. Sure, we can find people to help with one-off things – we can find someone to help us with a meal, or take one of our other children to a basketball game, and we can send our child to appointments and hire eating disorder experts, but when it all comes down to it, we parents are on the frontline of care for our child’s eating disorder. It’s a lot of pressure, and a lot of work. We are doing the hardest, most important work. Let’s not lose sight of ourselves even as we care for the ones we love.
