Hey Bette! Glad that you like my poster! Thank so much for your kind words. Means a lot, especially when it is from someone who has gone through all of it! I am so glad that you stand as a shout out example to all those people out there, who feel that that they would never recover from such a deadly illness or even for those who are currently experiencing it! Hats off Bete! And just as you have pointed out, BN is indeed a deadly and fatal disease, mortality rates of which ranges between 3% - 10 % (Crow et al, 2009). The common cause of death include cardiac or respiratory failure owing to the electrolyte imbalance from excessive purging.Less common reasons of death are choking due to rupture of the food pipe or stomach and in some rare cases may be suicide due to depression which is very often twinned with BN (Mehler, 2010).
