"I wish someone would make me stop!"
Kristin Haroldsen, a beautiful, talented, and charming girl of sixteen struggled with bulimia until, tragically, her eating disorder took her life. Using actual journal entries, Deborah Schone, Kristin’s best friend, re-creates her story and shares how Kristin’s eating disorder changed the lives of her friends, her family, and thousands of people since that tragic day more than twenty-five years ago.
For those who also find themselves by the side of a loved one struggling with an eating disorder, but are at a loss as to what to do, what to say, or where to turn for help, By Her Side offers a powerful, motivating resource.
With an intimate portrait of the impact of eating disorders on all those around the victim, By Her Side explores the reality of eating disorders and the damage and devastation that can come if they go untreated. Family members and friends affected by the loss of a loved one share their personal and intimate accounts of losing someone at an early age as a result of eating disorder behaviors. Kristin’s story is supported by educational information from Shelby Evans, a certified Substance Use Disorder Counselor, allowing the reader to gain insight and answers as well as access to resources for those seeking help. By Her Side also offers hope found in the inspiring story of a nurse who overcame her eating disorder and moved on to live a successful and happy life.
