this vision how much fruit one plant will bear….even more than you can eat yourself. There will be enough to give a lot away to your friends. So bountiful! You know it will happen and you are just waiting for it to happen. To be quite honest, I wouldn’t have expected you to be where you obviously are now so fast. The only thing I have to go on is that it has to do with your mum and your dad and it has to do with you.AT: You wrote me out something, didn’t you? You heard a song.DT: Celine Dion.DE: What’s the song? Can I get the lyrics?DT: Yep (enthusiastically)AT: It was about having eyes to see when you couldn’t see….ears to listen when you couldn’t hear…DE: Is that what your mum and dad were able to do?
DT: Yah, I wrote it up, as ‘Mum’s Song’.DE: Is that a real treasure for you Ann?AT: Yes it is because you wonder so much if you are doing the right thing.DE: I never had any doubt in you!DT: The chorus is ‘I’m everything I am because you love me!’DE: Gee I hope you keep that somewhere.AT: She typed it out and decorated it for me. I’ve got the tape and I play it every now and then. It’s my song’.DT: I am allowed to turn it up really loud!DE: No restrictions on that! What were the words again?DT: You had eyes when I couldn’t see; you had ears when I couldn’t hear…AT: You always saw the best in me.DE: What an anti-anorexic song that is!DT: For all the times you stood by me…you lifted me when I couldn’t reach…DE: Could you make a copy for me some time? I’d like to have it. Do you remember what Brett said about how if Anorexia had cracked the ‘rock’ of his mother and father, ‘I would have been gone”. Anorexia never could crack my relationship with my parents. Why I ask is that the League has become very concerned how anorexia dis-members’ people from your life. How would you consider that IT does that? You almost lost your Dad there for awhile, didn’t you?DT: Mumhuh. It tells you that they don’t care and that makes you not do anything to keep in contact with them. Like friends and stuff, you don’t phone them up because they don’t like you. You don’t look right. You are not nice enough.DE: What’s interesting now is that you seem to want to reconnect with the people in your life?DT: Mmhuh.DE: Anorexia won’t like that because for it to operate most successfully, it has to isolate you. Does that make sense to you?DT: Yah but I haven’t had the courage to ring anyone yet.DE: If you were to phone someone, who would be the first person on your list to phone? Just in terms of your intentions.DT: I’m not sure. I don’t really like the telephone very much.DE: Not intimate enough?DT: Yah.AT: She’s got her 16th birthday coming up. We must have a party.DE: What about an anti-Anorexia party?AT: That would be good, wouldn’t it?
