My old nurse Cathy flying to LA to help Noah! Re: Anorexia Symptoms: Woman Dies After Eating Disorder Struggle

I touched base with Cathy today for the first time in a year or two (Cathy is my old nurse that I met just before I met you in fall 2005, I either met her the week before or week after I met Schroeder in Sept)

and I was literally crying I’m so worried about Noah and overwhelmed with the kind of support he needs right now,

And she didn’t hesitate, she’s going to fly out to Los Angeles to stay with me for a few weeks (or months) to help Noah get the support he needs and get his weight under control…

I was so moved, I didn’t know what to say…I wasn’t expecting her to drop her life and offer to come out like that, I haven’t even seen her in years…I was so moved..

(Cathy moved back to NY to help her sister when she was dying of pancreatic cancer, and ended up staying because that’s where she’s from…she told me if I ever needed her, she would come back to Los Angeles, but that was a long time ago, I wasn’t even thinking about that when I reached out to her, I just wanted to get some advice or support….when I told her this is really overwhelming to deal with *and* overwhelmed with worry she said ‘I’m coming’–

I cried for about an hour I was so relieved…I really need to be focused on so many other problems right now, it’s too much, I need help right now…

Cathy can handle everything at home as well, like needle changes, dressing stuff, everything…

This article really sent an electric shock through my body as well, thankfully I found it after I talked to Cathy….my heart breaks for this family who lost their daughter, sounds like Noah, got worse because of Covid lockdown stress on her…

The article covers a lot of things I’m going through right now, even mentioned how hard it was to support their daughter with her eating disorder struggles because they also had 3 other kids, and I was like yes, eating disorder is so hard because if you’re not watching them *constantly* they don’t eat…

Just like Noah, how her daughter was obsessing over whether or not she took a sip of Dr Pepper sugar or sugar free…reminds me of Noah talking about sugar…I don’t know how many times I’ve said over the last couple of weeks ‘I don’t give A FUCK what you eat you need calories…you can worry about what you’re eating and getting healthier later…”

Cathy thinks Noah needs *immediately* a team of experts, psychiatrists, nutritionists, etc etc, which is exactly what you said yesterday too, Noah needs to see a bunch of people right now..

Right now, Noah had an appointment with dr Davidson to talk about the TPN on July 29th and Dr. Golderg about endocrinology on August 18th…hopefully Dr Davidson will get a cancellation so we can start sooner…this article has really scared me…Noah looks much worse much worse than this young lady does…

Do you think I should take Noah to be admitted in a hospital somewhere now?
