Bulimia: One Case

The post follows a NY Times story, placed oddly in the Fashion and Style section.

On May 6, 2009, Melissa Avrin died of a heart attack.  She was 19.  Her mother, Judy, is finishing a documentary about her life and  her bulimia.  There is also a web page with clips from the film and information (“resources”) about eating disorders.

The film’s label “NEDA” comes from the National Eating Disorders Association.  They look to have a very useful site.
