Case studies

Rachel’s story (Lynne’s daughter)

Case study - Rachel

Things felt out of control and I didn’t know what to grab onto to save myself. I remember my dad cooking dinner one night and me saying I didn’t want to eat because I was upset. I didn’t eat normally for a week; then I cut down to smaller portions, started not eating breakfast and throwing away my packed lunch.

Lynne’s story (Rachel’s mother)

Case study - Lynne

Christmas wasn’t a nice time at all. She nearly completely stopped eating and lay on the sofa crying from morning to night, thinking we were putting calories in the water. I had already started reading books and doing research on anorexia, which was where I heard about the Maudsley.
