    This is a deadly disorder, it’s hard to imagine someone thinking they are too heavy when in fact they are too thin. Great job!

  • Thank you!

    This is a mntal disorder my niece passed away of 2 years ago , she was 33. She was also bi-polar. Her journals were full of demons and lack of self acceptance. I feel it may be associated with psychophrenia, as she heard voices telling her she was fat, amongst other negative things. God rest your soul Lisha.

  • I’m so sorry Lynnie. God bless

    Mike, thank you so much. I believe this was a God thing, finding this art. It is helping me grieve, but also remember her Lisha and honour her memory. What prompted you to do this? Lisha could have gotten into a rehab facility for this, if she lived in a different state, and had insurance. It was a very long battle,starting when she was in her early 20’s.She lived by herself though , had a dog and 2 cats and was eccentric and artistic. She’s with jesus waitin for her friends and family when we join her, meanwhile shes a good weight now, up there, and dancin around! sorry for all of this. Bless you also—-so much!

  • Thanks again Lynnie – I’m glad you find my picture helpful. I worked for several years on the eating disorder wing of Great Ormond Street Hospital, so I met several girls like your precious Lisha. I guess they were the lucky ones to get this help. God bless you and Lisha too, no more harm can come to her now.
