Thanks for asking!

Up and down!

As lock down has gone on she started to struggle more, way too much time to dwell on her weight and appearance. Sheís lost a lot of weight. She doesnít need to lose any more.

She fell into a pattern of eating as little as she could each day. Not to the point where she wouldnít eat but not enough calories each day ie small portions and little snacks.

Anyway this culminated in her fainting in the kitchen last month. It was a hot day and she had not eaten enough. I spoke to our GP who sent us to the childrenís ward just to get her checked out due to our Ďfamily historyí...

They found she was constipated which was making her feel full and so not helping matters.

The whole incident gave her a real fright. Since then she has been making a real effort to eat more and more regularly but still has problems with what she sees in the mirror...

I think her grief/anxiety is effecting her stomach and appetite but she is making an effort to eat regularly even if she is not hungry...

She has her first virtual session with her counsellor tomorrow, Iíve already briefed her counsellor so fingers crossed itís helpful...

Iím also hoping the routine of returning to school might be helpful.

Sorry to waffle on! I appreciate you asking, I really do!

Take good care.

Thank you for updating us buryboy. Even though Emma may be struggling a little more at the moment she has done so well. Sending big hugs to you all.

Well time for a little update .

Thankfully all relatively quiet on the Western front.
We have fared much better than many in this annus horribilis.
Really glad University was decided against as it sounds like itís been so difficult for Uni students this year
Emma has been working through since my last update . So thatís been a positive as she struggles on other days with not much to focus on.
Weight hasnít been great and every attempt to increase daily intake results in another round of refusal
She is suffering a bit with upper back pain . Her low weight obviously isnít good for her bones . She has had X-rays which shows no major issues but could do with getting to the bottom of it
Not much progress on the therapy front , she has finally has one zoom session but nothing set for investigation into possible autism

DS has been working hard-ish for college ( just in one day a week and rest online ) and thankfully no isolation . He has managed to grab a few Xmas run-in shifts at M&S . Glad DW has done the get-ups for the 6 and 7am shifts

DW has carried on working at school . She has found it really tough but a couple of weeks rest now will do her good

I got my 15 year badge at work today and a nice gift card but they have certainly had their pound of flesh this year

We managed a really unexpected week in Lanzarote at half term so realise we have been more fortunate than many despite being under restrictions since late July

Just wishing everyone a Merry Xmas and a better New Year than this has been

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear from you. Youngest has now been to doctors, actually for another unrelated issue brought on by covid. I told the doctor everything abot weight loss, lack of eating tiredness and he spoke to her lovely, weighed, measured her. He has said she needs 5kg on at least by summer, said to eat what she wants over christmas but need iron rich food and protein. I did explain this is the issue haha she has agreed, more so because he said bloods would need to be taken otherwise and she terrified of that. Fingers crossed we mightve got through to her.
