Anorexia Boy Recovery: A mother’s blog about her teenage son’s recovery from anorexia, Part I – 2011

Traditionally, eating disorders have been associated with teenage girls and young women. But increasing numbers of teenage boys and young men are exhibiting the classic signs of anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders.

Anorexia Boy Recovery: A mother’s blog about her teenage son’s recovery from anorexia, Part I – 2011

In Anorexia Boy Recovery Part I – 2011 (based on the 2011 posts of her popular online blog) Bev Mattocks describes how, in 2009, her family gradually realised that their 15 year old rugby-playing son, Ben, was developing anorexia. It talks about the family’s struggle to get their son’s illness diagnosed and their long and distressing wait for treatment culminating in a shocking turn of events which led to a much earlier assessment. The book describes how, with the help of his parents and UK-based treatment team, Ben eventually began to recover, but not before facing further uphill struggles and battles.

In January 2011 Bev Mattocks made the decision to write a blog based on their experiences in order to help other parents of young men and women with eating disorders. The blog - read by followers all over the globe - looks back on the development of Ben’s eating disorder and examines the signs and symptoms. It goes on to chronicle how Ben finally responded to treatment and describes the various ups and downs along the way.
