Full Product Description
"She's not going anywhere. Her heart is struggling. She's not stable enough to move"
Lizzie couldn't believe it. She had just gone to the hospital for a quick check-up and now they told her she could die.
The doctors had diagnosed Anorexia and that she must regain weight. Her life closed in around her, but all she wanted was to avoid food. Anyone who lives with an eating disorder fights their own thoughts, their own anxieties, their own self, every second of every minute of every day.
For Lizzie this was her reality from the age of 14. However through professional help, the support of her loving family and her faith, she somehow found the hope and strength to overcome.
Life Hurts tells Lizzie's story, reflecting on it from her perspective as a doctor. Her vision is to inspire and encourage others to see that, although eating disorders can be devastating, there is hope for all of us.
