Today, I found myself hunting down your homepage... remembering two and a half years ago desperately searching for answers, and thankfully finding you. I am 27 years old and living binge and purge free. I have Rader to thank for much of my new life, for that is what you helped me find. A life. I was bulimic for close to 13 years of my life. I never dreamed I'd find a man that could love a less than perfect looking me, and never in a million years did I think I could ever go through the experience of having a child... a son...who was eight months old as of yesterday. The Rader staff is unquestionably the most caring, and nonjudgmental group of angels I've run across... and in my heart are so very very missed (I say that with a smile). I hope that many more can find that while recovery is a day by day challenge, and sometimes we slip, but we don't have to fall, it can offer a life outside the compulsion. I'm grateful to Rader, and all the Raderettes (patients I went through the program with) for the support and guidance down a brighter path. ... You will all be forever in my heart when I remember that time in my life.
Thank you all again, and God Bless,
