Truth in LoveMature

The next day was a blur, and I honestly can't tell you what happened then because all the minor events seem to blur together as one. But on Wednesday, I can tell you about the most important event of the entire week: Truth in Love.

See, the purpose of Truth in Love was for each family, in front of each other, share what had gone on with the eating disorder. The patient would begin by sharing, for example, what her insecurities were, what prompted her to develop an eating disorder, and (if she was pro-recovery) what her plans for recovery were. Then, the entire family would be led by the main counselor in a discussion that talked about what the eating disorder had done to each member, ultimately bringing healing and understanding.

It would prove to be the most powerful time of the entire week.

The End
