Today on Family Talk we will be discussing a topic that is sensitive but necessary to speak about: Anorexia. Our guest today Lindy Clark shares with us her struggles and how she was able to succeed.

As a teen and when a new bride, Lindy had been in a struggle with what is known as Anorexia Nervosa. She recalls, 'It was when I heard about the death of Karen Carpenter that I realized I had the same problem.' The divorce of her parents at the age of 12 had taken an unsee toll on her. No one really knew that she was struggling with such things, not even her husband. After 2 years of marriage their daughter Kristen was born. On the day she was born Lindy gained the final pound that the doctor insisted she gain. These were not happy times for her.

The hidden secrets of Anorexia Nervosa were never really exposed to anyone except a couple of close friends and later her husband. The birth of her child followed by 3 yrs of post partum depression complicated her condition. In 1991, after 20 years of suffering in silence, she finally found healing through prayers of faithful, caring friends. From that point on the battle was no longer raging within her. She was finally free and although the residuals effects of Anorexia still exist, they no longer control her life.

Be sure to listen to this compelling 30 minute show and how you may help others who battle with the struggles of Anorexia.
