Hi everyone, My name is Bethany. I'm 19, Student at IWU, and i love to knit.
I have had an eating disorder since i was young. I was diagnosed with anorexia spring of 2008.
I was IP at Pacific Shores Hospital in April of 2008. I remember when I was in treatment one of the things that just made my day was getting mail. I actually ordered things so that I would get mail.
Before I left for treatment, a few friends of mine gave me Flynn. She is a lovely pink ducky that i could take with me to PSH to cuddle with. She rode with me on my first plane ride. With me on the long drive to PSH from the airport. And she was with me after all the hard meals and moments. She meant the world to me.
When a close friend of mine got sick and had to be hospitalized, i knitted her a buddie to send to her like my friends did with Flynn. It made me feel great to see how he brightened her day.
For those of you that are going, or in treatment, or know someone that is. I would love to be able to do the same for you. I would love to knit you a lovely huggable pillow buddie to go with you on your journey toward recovery. Recovery can be lonely, but you don't have to do it alone.
If you would like to be involved or would like to receive a knitted recovery buddie please email me at the email listed below.
