The impacts of an eating disorder don’t stop at the person who is affected. Parents, siblings, partners, extended family and friends often find themselves sharing the rollercoaster ride of emotions that go with an eating disorder — from confusion and desperation, to the joys of gradual improvements and landmark achievements. It's crucial for family and friends to have information and support about eating disorders in order to best help their loved one, as well as themselves.
