    I was surprised to find no comments. I went looking for dates, times then it clicked, this is about Mental Health. I wanted to see other comments, to be sure that what I wanted to say was sort of generally what everyone else thought of this article. There is no one else. It’s a lonely place. A lot like Mental Illness.

    So Dr. Rutherford what I wanted to say was THANK YOU! Lots of hugs for u today. Use them as u need them.

    Dr. Rutherford,

    Thank you for a beautiful personal narrative. Thank you for a glimpse past the veil into the real you. These types of confessions are really good for everyone’s soul.

      You’re welcome Kimberly. I try hard to not wear a veil now, something that I know I, and many others, have done and are still doing. I appreciate the read and the comment. And if you’re an ex-anorexic, as your description say, you’ve had a long hard road yourself.
