Read full description of the books:
Traditionally, eating disorders have been associated with teenage girls and young women. But increasing numbers of teenage boys and young men are exhibiting the classic signs of anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders.
In "Anorexia Boy Recovery Part II – 2012" (based on the 2012 posts of her popular online blog) Bev Mattocks continues to describe her teenage son’s recovery from anorexia.
Although at the beginning of 2012 Ben was well on the road to recovery, he wasn’t fully recovered. There were still underlying issues that needed addressing, issues which, no doubt, other families also face during the later stages of their son’s or daughter’s anorexia. As a result, 2012 was a year when Ben’s recovery was still very much a work in progress.
2012 was a year of ups and downs, of challenges and of glitches. Ben’s mood and motivation went up and down like a rollercoaster as he reached a number of frustrating plateaux and stumbling blocks. Yet 2012 was also a year of tremendous successes and emotional highs. It was the year that Ben sat his A-levels, won his place at his first choice of university and prepared to leave home. That, in itself, is a long tale which may prove useful for other parents wondering whether or not their child is ready for university or college.
Crucially, 2012 was a year when the family could see the light shining brightly at the end of the tunnel, a light that had seemed so dim and unattainable in past years. Bev says that sometimes the light seemed so close they could almost touch it. Yet at other times it seemed to be moving further and further away.
From the Back Cover
"Recovery from anorexia is slow… painfully slow most of the time. But, as a parent, you can’t give up. You just have to carry on, battling with all the potholes and hurdles that your child’s illness throws in your way."
Bev Mattocks’ blog AnorexiaBoyRecovery (written under the name Batty Matty) has become one of the most “followed” of all blogs about eating disorders in boys from a parent’s perspective. Anorexia Boy Recovery Part II is a collection of posts from 2012. It looks back on the history of her teenage son Ben’s anorexia and chronicles the third year of his journey to recovery as Ben prepares to embark on his university career.
"In 2009 when Ben first began to show signs of anorexia, I had no idea that boys got eating disorders. Like many people, I assumed anorexia was exclusive to girls. I believed it was a "diet gone wrong", that all they needed was a good talking to and they’d snap out of it. But of course eating disorders aren’t like that. Not one bit."
