About the Book

Anorexia and bulimia are eating disorders not to be taken lightly. This is a true account of one person's incredible journey of survival once the residual effects take over the body.

It appears fashionable for adolescence, young adults even pre-teens to experiment in such self destructing behavior without fully knowing the consequences. In Pam's case, her vascular disease lead to the amputation of both feet, all fingers including the thumb amputated and the tips of two fingers on her right had as well. Her respiratory condition lead to only 35% capacity of use of her lungs. She suffered from kidney failure resulting in her being dialyzed three times a week. There were times she would slip into a coma while the doctors did not know whether or not she would survive. Of course, there were plenty of set backs where she ended up back in I.C.U and had to start the recovery process all over.

Her greatest wish was to become healthy so she could return home. Her second wish was to tell everybody around her about her sickness and feelings.
