In a fresh start to the new year, I am delighted to announce publication of an updated version of my memoir, Eating With Your Anorexic. It has a new foreword, by Dr. Cindy Bulik, a new cover, and annotations reflecting on the last 10 years of being an eating disorder activist.
In 2004, I knew no one in the eating disorder world. I had no voice but that of one mom both amused and angry at the state of treatment and research. Each of you, dear mothers and fathers, have that one voice. I've found it both satisfying and terribly frustrating to use mine. It's been an honor to do so alongside so many other fierce and fascinating people: parents and patients and clinicians and researchers.
Also, for those interested in my other work, visit the new website: LMWriter.com where you can read a poem about hair, see me tap dancing, and learn why you shouldn't put me on your gift list.
