Eating Disorder Awareness

Eating disorders can effect men, women and children. It can be anorexia, bulimia of diabulimia.

The person can be very thin, or not thin, it is an illness that most people would never know

exists by looking at the person. My daughter is diabetic and struggles with diabulemia.

 It tears my heart apart as a mom to see her struggle like she does. I am so proud of her

taking steps to beat this disease and I feel with the right help and lots of prayers that she will.

I want to share her story with you.  My daughter is beautiful inside and on the outside too.

She is the best mother that I have ever seen. She adores her family.

  1. Hugs Lecia! You have a full plate too my friend. Eating disorders are hard to understand if you don't know someone with one. My sister has battled it since she was 16, though along with her many issues she uses is a weapon against every and a excuses she chooses not to get help as everything is everyone else's fault not her own.
    I am so glad stephanie see what this has done and WANTS to get better, that is half the battle! My sister choose to do nothing. Hugs to your family and know she is going to get better! OLM

  5. I've always thought through the pics you post that your daughter was beautiful.I'm glad she realizes there is a problem and is trying to fight it.That is a very important part realizing and knowing for themselves.I know she'll try so hard so she can be there for her adorable kids.She's lucky to have wonderful love and support of family as well.I'm sending up prayers(still praying for your momma,dad and you) I was unaware that this disorder even existed till today.Hugs!~Amy

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
