Leah was one of my girls. There are several of you that email me and post to my blog, sharing your intimate feelings about your eating disorders. You all are the reason I am totally driven to do this.
Since Leah’s death early Tuesday morning, I have thought quite a bit about her and how she has now brought my mission to a whole different level.
I am reading all the posts from her friends, either sent to me directly, or to Jen, or to Polly, and I realize how the lost of this wonderful young life has sent a waves across many lives. All of us connected by one common, ugly cause.
Will Leah’s death make at least one girl stop and think about what she is doing to herself when she throws up her binged dinner or sets her daily calorie intake to 200? I sure as hell hope so.
As Leah would say, I guess for now we need to “just be.”
Thanks Leah for touching my life. You are a light and I believe you are watching. I won’t let you down kiddo.
