UNIQUELY YOURS- PARENTING
Eating Disorders in teens are more common than we'd like to think. Teenagers try to hide or justify their behaviors and parents may not know what to do. It is not an overstatement to say that eating disorders control the whole family, not just the individual who is powerless to "get over it." I know my parents would have been relieved if I could have made a decision to stop under-eating and over-exercising, but that is not how it happened for my family. My name is Laurel Marr. I struggled with Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa from the age of 15 to 35. I have made a full recovery physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I am excited to have an opportunity to share my experiences with parents who are in need of information.
