More on Adult Anorexia Nervosa

Posted Jul 29 2010 12:00am

I have written a few pieces before about adult anorexia and recently did an interview with More magazine (for women over age 40) on the subject that I think should be appearing soon. It is such an important topic and older women certainly struggle with anorexia in silence. 

But breaking some of that silence this week is an article to which I'd like to draw your attention:" Adult anorexia: the forgotten tragedy of lives lost to illness", which ran in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Here's a quote: ''People who fall into this particular category are not in treatment because they are too scared to seek help - because getting better means putting on weight." And you can read the full article at the link below.

Mentioned in the article are two of my esteemed colleagues, June Alexander and Christine Morgan, chief executive of the highly esteemed Butterfly Foundation. Check out their great website here: http://www.thebutterflyfoundation.org.au/

And here is the link to the full article heralding from Australia.

For more about adult anorexia nervosa as well as both the hope and the challenges of treating this illness, feel free to check out my book, " 100 Questions and Answers about Anorexia Nervosa ".
