Someday Melissa~ A mother helps others in the shadow of her daughter's death~
This is a documentary about Judy's daughter who lost her battle with bulimia in 2009.
Through the years of my battle with bulimia and anorexia I have watched dozens of movies that only further contributed to my eating disorder and desire to get to being a "true anorexic" to show the depths of my despair!
This dvd is about Recovery and of Hope. This mother turned her despair of the loss of her daughter, at the young age of 19, to helping thousands of us struggling with this. My heart goes out to her and her loss. Melissa did not survive her "ed"/ "ana"/"ednos". We can. We are still here.
There is no quick fix to recovery. It's a rough road but it leads to health and living life instead of merely waiting to die of this disease.
I have just ordered this dvd to watch with my therapist but wanted to pass this along to all of you in hopes you will order it and grab tightly a hold of recovery.
I still have down days and days of food struggles, like today, but I am choosing to reach out and admit it without shame and push forward, tears and all!
There is a trailer on this if you go to the site itself where you can also order this DVD. There is also a link on Facebook.
