Now THAT'S how it's done

In today's Star-Tribune Letters To The Editor:

An opportunity to learn

In the articles about Terri Schiavo, there is usually a brief sentence referring to her struggles with bulimia, but nothing further is discussed. I think this whole experience could be an educational tool for young men and women.

As a young woman, I received educational material regarding eating disorders in high school, in college and through television programs, but never have I seen a case as bad as Terri Schiavo's gain media attention. This is a real life example of an eating disorder gone wrong.

Educating the public about the consequences of Terri's eating disorder would be a great way to turn this entire experience into something positive.

Is there such a thing as an eating disorder gone right?
