- 5 – 10% of people die within ten years of contracting the disease.
- 18-20% will be dead after twenty years.
One woman and one girl has died from their eating disorders this past week who I met at my second treatment center. These make the fourth and fifth people I have known to have died from this disease.
I have been out of my first treatment center for five years. I have been out of my second treatment center for four years. I am scared as to what the next twenty years will bring for the women I grew to love.
When are they going to stop dieing?
I will remember you Nicki, Keir, Amber, Mattie and Aimee. I will fight for you.
