Save the drama for your mama
"I'm thinking of a new term which is "ed dramas"--all the little dramas that help ed move the focus to anything but eating and gaining weight--and there are so many to choose from: something is wrong with the scale, they didn't can't work with the doctor, interpersonal relationships are "toxic", the food doesn't taste good, the girl has always been slim, it's important to have normal teenaged activities, --anything else! BUT the main thing and most important thing that is so often sacrificed or put aside for these diversions is EATING. And unfortunately these tangential and diversionary tactics are often so effective, when used by a teen or family members who are not fully on board with the eating and gaining of weight. Losing the forest for the trees!"
