Eating Disorders | Personal Advice from an FBCA Alumna

My Personal Advice to Parents with a Loved One with an Eating Disorder

By Megan Hodge, Fort Bend Christian Academy Class of 2010

I wrote this article about a week ago when my mom asked me for advice to tell parents who came to her concerned about their daughter's eating habits. Because this happens more often than I would like to admit, I decided I need to share this advice with parents.

My name is Megan Hodge, and I struggled with Anorexia Nervosa when I was 11 years old. I was hospitalized at Texas Children’s Hospital for eight weeks and received outpatient therapy for one year after. I was bitter, angry, and frustrated. I was treated like an eating disorder rather than a person, and I felt the stigma associated with having an eating disorder. My family did not know what to do to help, so I am giving advice from my perspective as someone who had to learn the hard way.

For some people, the holiday season can be difficult and challenging due to unfortunate circumstances from the past or current trials, but Mr. Harris encourages Christians to read Psalm 63:1-8 this Christmas.

"Psalm 63 is a convicting but strong reminder for me on how I should praise God for He is the one who satisfies me completely," Harris said.
