059 Fighting Anorexia – How Anorexia Impacts the Lives of Siblings (Interview with my Sister)

by Anne-Sophie

in Podcast


In this special episode of Fighting Anorexia, I share an interview with my sister Valerie with you. Valerie has been my rock in the years of my struggle and has been there for my during the hard months of recovery.

She’s three years younger than me and I have always felt horrible for impacting her youth in such a negative way, but I am proud of her for being such a strong, independent and amazing young woman.

In the interview we talk about the first time she noticed that I was sick, how it was for her to see me getting sicker and sicker, how she has tried to help me and how the disorder influenced her in general.

We then discuss the fact that there are moments where you are angry at the person that has the illness for many understandable reasons and how you can deal with those feelings. And we talk about the way that my recovery has influenced her and her life and so much more.

Thank you for sharing this. It is never easy to see a loved one suffer from any condition. A simple fever drives a mother crazy! What more if one is facing a serious condition like anorexia? In such situations, when it is true that the significant others should be most understanding, they also need some degree of support and understanding. This is a life situation when both parties and all those involved should work hand-in-hand to come up with the best solutions for the benefit of everyone. Again, thank you for sharing. Please keep on posting.
