As a dietitian who specialises in
Eating Disorders, I often see young patients who are struggling with food and
weight issues, limiting their ability to live a full and fulfilling life. There
was a patient I met who didn’t have the strength to get out of bed when she was
first admitted to the hospital. She required many weeks of nutritional
rehabilitation before she could be fit for discharge.
The most memorable
moment was when she returned for her outpatient appointment, full of energy,
telling me that she was anxious yet excited about the dinner appointment she
had planned with a friend that day. Her transformation from a fragile being to
one who embraces life with enthusiasm never fails to amaze me.
