This review is from: My Hungry Hell: What it's Really Like to be Anorexic - A Personal Story (Paperback)
Being a sufferer of anorexia myself, i was unsure of whether this book was appropriate me as it is intended for sufferers. However, reading this book has been hugely beneficial for me. It gave me a REALLY vivid and deep insight into the origins of the illness, giving me a much better understanding of why it takes hold. It was reasuring to read of someone else's experiance, which had so much in common with mine. It's like seeing into the deep, dark depths of my own mind!
Chisholm is an inspirational, analytical and insightful author. She quotes from a vast number of materias and i feel that her book is able to draw together the important information from each and fits them together with significant elaborations.
This book has changed the way i look at recovery. It provides bucket-loads of useful advice and gives me genuine hope that it is possible.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to sufferers AND carers alike!!
