Men can fall victim to eating disorders, too, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. You can get better. This doesn’t have to be your life. I am your neighbor — just one person who will lend you a hand and help you march out of the fire. And I know there will be many others. You just have to let us in.

So many years in the making — years of hovering from a distance, allowing you the space to find your way. Silently rejoicing as I saw you re-emerge from your illness. Each year getting better than the one before. And now, to hear you say the words you knew I needed to hear. I will carry it with me always.

You refused to let the eating disorder, which lived between us for so many years, hide the person I really was. I was fragile as I left the eating disorder treatment center, and you were the Rock of our family as I struggled to walk forward in my recovery journey. I know that I would not be able to enjoy the freedom I have today in recovery if you had not been by my side.

Dear Boy in the Closet, I want to first begin by saying that I love you and that today I am so grateful. You are the part of my life I cannot imagine living without. Thank you for never giving up on me and for patiently waiting for me to open the door so we could play once again.

This is your first, full, year of school without a relapse and a return to treatment. I know you tell us how incredible it is to be back at your school, in your life, and living without your eating disorder. Your life is yours; you have it, so hold onto it as you enter the world as an incredible young adult in recovery!

You enabled a lasting recovery that I never thought possible. You taught me how to love myself. You taught me acceptance. You made sure I never gave up. I am finally free.

Remember when you worked at the San Diego Humane Society and sent a hopeless email to your therapist? You wrote, “I feel like I will never recover, and I hate myself for that.” Well, you will recover. You will become a mother. You will write a book. You will latch onto and love this awesome, messy, mundane life.
