INTERVENTION on Monday evening

On Monday night there will be an episode of Intervention dealing with our subject manner. I just thought it might be informative in some way.

From the A&E website:

Monday, April 19th 09:00 pm ET
Tuesday, April 20th 01:00 am ET

Amy and her family escaped the violence of apartheid-era South Africa and immigrated to Canada 22 years ago. But Amy suffered from anxiety and low self-esteem, and she became anorexic and, soon after, bulimic. Now she lives alone in the basement of her family's house and steals from family members to pay for her eating binges. Weighing only 92 pounds, Amy is on the brink of death.

Thanks for the heads up, Intervention used to be one of my "shows". But unfortunatly I switched our sattelite ( did I misspell that?) package to a cheaper deal and no longer get that station. My son says I am a cheap bastard. I say I am a pragmatist. You can't please everyone.

Made me cry. Brought back too many memories. At the end I could see that she was just lying to the camera. Very sad.

I'd wish these shows would also go through some information on the steps to recovery. I know too well the pain and torments. It is the recoveries that really interest me.

I agree with you about how such info would be helpful.

Sorry it was tough watching that, Oopsla. You've come a long way.
