Recovering From Anorexia

Recovery from anorexia is a lifelong process – and winning the battle doesn’t mean an anorexic isn’t susceptible to future relapse.  Aimee Liu was first treated for anorexia when she was 15-years old, and in 1979 she wrote Solitaire, the first anorexic memoir ever to be published.  At 40, she again found herself in recovery for the eating disorder.  Her new book, Gaining: The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders, is a sequel of sorts and reveals the mistakes doctors and families often make in treating someone with an eating disorder.   Aimee shares her experience, her opinions on the best approach to full recovery and what it’s like to be treated for anorexia in middle age.
