WordKeeper, I am so sorry to hear about your husband. Bulimia is indeed a devastating condition. It must have been so frustrating when no recovery centers agreed to heal your husband - it reflects on the urgent need for more support for those who are struggling, no matter how much the individuals have to deal with at once. But it was extremely courageous of you to arrange the intervention; you did the right thing, even if he did not realize it. Sometimes, it can be hard to recognize the true goodwill of others.
I am glad to hear that Frank Bruni's new book has been released; I had read his very well-written and engaging article on the NYT a few weeks back, talking about his "baby bulimia." I agree that Bruni's publication could spread awareness of the struggles of men with bulimia and has the potential to lead more people to recovery. This book seems like one more step forward for healing bulimia.
