Consider it an “ED win” when you plate this for your child in #eatingdisorderrecovery and they turn to you after weeks of you plating meals for them and they say, “Do we have any sliced bananas? This really would go well with bananas.”
That will happen.
Suddenly, one day, your child will make a comment like that out of the blue showing you that their enjoyment for food is slowly returning… You may jump for joy and do somersaults inside and you will look back at them and say with a straight face, “You’re right, do you want some?”
And you will know that all that hard work, worrying, and tears, may actually have been worth it, and more importantly, be working....
