Christmas Vs The Eating Disorder

“Don’t forget to leave out milk and cookies for Santa!”
“Have some more eggnog.”
“Don’t you want some of the pecan pie? I made it just for you!”
“You’re getting too thin. Here, have some more of this.”
“Getting a little pot belly, aren’t we?”

Between the constant focus on food and dealing with friends and relatives, Christmas can be very difficult for anyone struggling with an eating disorder.
