    It's harder because the range of emotions is so much greater, and because the literal exigencies of this process are so complex. There's the denial at the start, followed by dawning comprehension, shock, and horror. There's shame and self-balme, guilt and doubt. There's anger and frustration. And then there's the sheer exhaustion, physical and emtional, of battling a force you can't physically touch and don't understand.
    Another of our family strengths is the fact that Jamie and I have very different temperaments. I'm quick - sometimes too quick - to take action and rush to conclusions; he's a think-about-it-from-all angles kind of guy. I'm loquacious; he's more reserved. I like to = need to -talk things through, while he's more private. He processes situations slowly; I tend to leap first, ask questions later. I'm empathetic, sometimes overly so, while he maintains more of an emotional distance. At times these differences have proved problematic for us as a couple. But they've made us more resilient and resourceful parents.
    Blame makes you sit alone in the dark and feel like your skin has been flayed. Blame takes away your power and makes you into a small scolded child, when what you need is to get bigger. So big that you can reach down and swat away what plagues you. Big enough to stare down the demon no matter what form it takes.
    Kitty is still too impaired, too much under the spell of the demon and its distractions. Kitty will have to integrate the whole of this experience - all the feelings and events, the terrors and the lessons - into the rest of her life. I'ts a process that will take years.
    So I know that 90 percent of ideal body weight does not constitute recovery. It's an improvement; it's medically stabe. But it's too ow to promote true psychoogical healing. The demon is still very much in the picture at 90 percent.
    Residential care is usually a stopgap, a kick start to recovery, rather than recovery itself. REal recovery takes months, maybe years. It takes the regular application of food, lots of food, to break the self-reinforcing cycle of restricting, to alter the neurobiology that perpetuates the disease, to retrain the brain.
