Many of us have read the story of Bronte Cullis and her struggle with anorexia. Last night on A Current Affair they showed where she is now up to with her life. The Melbourne hospital she was originally admitted to gave up on Bronte and could not treat – she was 16. They expected her to die from anorexia. Her family got her into a Canadian treatment centre, ACA followed Bronte and her family to Canada from Australia and have kept in touch with her since then. Weep with joy in her recovery, her life joys and know that this goal can be yours.
To support this, I and many others have seen the same side of anorexia with our daughters: painfully thin, possessed, very sick and being tube fed. But we now see daughters, further along the recovery road and they do not resemble that sick girl anymore and are choosing life as best they can each day.
As Bronte says, “it is not a choice to get sick, but it is a choice to live and not to die”.
