Balancing Schoolwork and Hospital Stays (for Teens)

Four Big Steps To Make The Transition to School:

How do you manage treatment and school?

SO STRESSFUL!

1. Call your school counselor. Let he/she know that the length of time away from school is unknown in can be a few weeks to months. So the plan needs to be taken seriously.

2. Schedule a meeting with the counselor, school social worker and other important staff that will help with the transition.

3. Ask for accommodations when returning back. ( extra extensions to get the work done, tutor to catch up, take out unnecessary homework assignments or quizzes)

4. Set up a meeting with the current therapist, Dietitian and school personnel to have a set plan for reentry (who will be eating with the student?

Every student finds it hard to stay on top of schoolwork sometimes. So what happens when you have to miss a lot of school? This article for teens offers tips and advice.

A worthwhile read on the heritability of Eating Disorders which explores the work of Cynthia Bulik, Director of UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders. https://bit.ly/2CSA581

Key takeaways from the article...

Some researchers estimate that 2% of women and 0.3% of men are affected by Anorexia Nervosa (AN) globally.

Twin studies have established that AN is 50-50% heritable.

Another study revealed a connection between AN and a locus overlapping six genes on chromosome 12; previous research linked that same region to autoimmune disorders, including type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

There are strong correlations between AN and neuroticism, schizophrenia and various metabolic features.

ED's, like other psychiatric illnesses, are influenced by many biological pathways.

People who develop ED's commonly have traits like anxiety, perfectionism and harm avoidance.

This research demonstrates the importance of a science-based approach to treatment that is anchored in a clear understanding of the biology of these illnesses.

"We must change how every physician and therapist learns about eating disorders." —Cynthia Bulik, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Parenting and eating disorders have a complicated relationship. Parents are never responsible for an eating disorder, and they have tremendous potential to help their children heal from an eating disorder.

Every little bit counts. Take the risk. It is worth it!

A little restricting hurts a lot. For me, holding onto any piece of my eating disorder, no matter how small, was like leaving an ember burning after a forest fire. One tiny ember can get the entire blaze roaring again.

Is anyone willing to commit, this Monday, to doing your best to give up an Ed behavior (one that you’ve been holding onto)? Please share to help inspire others.

Please don’t post specific Ed behaviors, as I don’t want this thread trigger people. But, rather, post the pro-recovery step you plan to take! 💪❤️
