  3. *I'm just wanting to point out that I (the commenter named Laura) am not the blog author named Laura - in case if Lisa was confused and thought Laura C was saying she was going when I commented and then was wanting to share something... I didn't want to lead readers on...

  4. Thank you, Laura - I guess we did confuse people! I'm not able to go, sad to say.

  6. Hi...I came across your blog and story and it really resinated with me…. I wanted to reach out because I am a singer/songwriter and have a new song and music video I would like to share.. called “Fading Away”. I wrote this song because I have a couple of friends who have battled with depression and eating disorders. I was trying to convey my personal agony in dealing with this…and also the helplessness felt by friends and family when they watch their loved one fade away. It was recently nominated for “Video of The Year” by Limelight Magazine (see info below) If there is any chance you could use this for your page or blog…that would be amazing. I want to help spread the word and hopefully encourage others to get help early on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx1tPIEXNAA

    * if you like the video and my music please go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/limelightmagazinereaderspoll (Nominated for Video of The Year & Country Artist of The Year”)
    ….voting ends January 25th @ 11:45PM

    I hope my video helps people to understand the depth and severity of eating disorders and the toll it can take on a family.
