Our family is not the problem, the ED is the problem
Dear FEAST,THANK YOU so much for your <a href="https://www.feast-ed.org/parents-do-not-cause-eating-disorders-ps/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Position Statement</a> “Parents do not cause Eating Disorders”. I have printed it and I am going to hand it to any and every doctor or therapist who explicitly or implicitly tries to infer I am to blame. My daughter has been ill for years and I get this all the time from so-called Family Therapists (as opposed to FBT, which is good). They keep trying to “fix” our family. Our family is not the problem, the ED is the problem!!With heartfelt thanks,Sarah, UK
