I was in your program when I was seventeen and struggling very hard with this disease. At the time I thought I would never get better. I am 22 now and doing very well, your program is God sent, and I know it saved my life. The time I spent in Rader, was I time I hold very close to my heart the counselors and the people in the program go through my mind daily, especially as I have gotten older. Right now I am an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and I am slowly finishing up with a degree in athletic training. Also I give talks in high school classrooms on eating disorders, and the response I have received from that age group is amazing. As for my love life I found a wonderful man whom words cannot even describe, and thanks to Rader I know how to communicate with him in such an open and non-dysfunctional way. I still take life Day to Day, and I have my bad days because I am not perfect! Who ever may get this email please tell the people whom are in the program there is hope, I never in a million years would have thought I would be where I am today and be this happy. I wish I could put into words the thanks I owe to everyone who worked with me and work at Rader today. May God bless you in everything you do for all of these wonderful people who need your help, love and guidance to a wonderful life that is so well deserved.
