I read fast... Lol it's 3:30 AM and I stil plan to stay up a few more hours and I'm only TEN XD. 10 rather, though... I only caught like 2 mistakes, otherwise this was perfect!

Great story! I'd just like to point out that it isn't Bulimic Anorexia, it's Anorexia binge-purge subtype.

Great story. It was really accurate and very good. You have obviously done your research (which I can say I'm truly ecstatic about since it seems that it's a bit of a rarity).
Just to point out, it's not bulimic anorexia, it's anorexia nervosa binge-purge subtype. just a small correction, and I understand if you just put bulimic anorexia because it's shorter. :p

You should a sequel to this explaining Harry's treatment, how he deals with it and if he relapses then how he and everyone else deals with it. Or just a short one on him getting together with someone in he future and they asking why he's so skinny (after treatment) and him explaining it. Even if you don't I still love this story and I believe it depicts Anorexics and Bulimics very well. At least from my point of view (I currently am suffering from an eating disorder). I will read and hopefully review more of your stories!

Wow! That's what i think of this story. First of all I LOVE how it wasn't a "harry get and eating disorder and two weeks later so and so saves him" type story. You took time. And that's what happens with an eating disorder. I suffer from bulimic anorexia myself. And what you wrote is exactly how it happens. I love how you brought Neville into it as well. Since he is my favorite character that made me happy! I'm also very glad you made it clear that guys suffer too. Not just girls. I'm so happy some one did research on this subject and wrote a well written and enjoyable story. Thank you. Really. I love how Ron became level headed. You showed him growing up. And Hermione was spot on! I also loved the ending. Basically, I love this story. The entire thing! You are impressive! Thank you.

A very well written story!
My friend's mother was a bulimic anorexic, she would eat very little and then throw it up. I hate how most people think anorexia and bulimia are totally different things and you can only have one of them. She had a very bad childhood and still is really thin and has problems with depressions. My friend, Jessie, now lives with her father because the mother couldn't really care for her.
Last year two of my other friends decided that they were too fat so they started throwing up. Jessie and I tried to help them but we didn't know what to do and they didn't want any professional help. One of them still throws up sometimes, the other stopped and tried losing weight by not eating anything for a whole week. That got me interested in the subject and this story explains the process very well.

This is really good, it's amazing to have a story which adresses issues like this, which are well reserched and accurate. (including the hiding and friends reactions). I'm really bad at these, but just know that I am very impressed with you writing skill, and to be able to write this well on a topic which you have (hopefully) never personally encountered is wonderful. Seriously.

I am the 100th reviewer.. WOOHOO! :) So i just want to say that i am basically in love with this story. And if there isn't a sequel that damn well should be! This is by far the best "harry potter has an eating disorder" story i have ever read. Hands down. Absolutely amazing! I can't believe it doesn't have more reviews.. i was expecting in the thousands! I will definitely suggest this story to anyone. I really liked how Ron was the one to get to Harry and how he showed him how much he really cared. I thought it was sweet. And definitely a change to what you usually read! This story really shows him becoming a man. I just really enjoyed this story. Thank you :)

Very interesting read. I remember talking about eating disorders in Health (we had a bunch of disorders, DID, eating, narcissistic, etc. and we had to do a report on it with a group) and what little I know about Bulimic Anorexics matches what you've written.
This isn't my typical fare, reading-wise, but I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading this, especially the ending. You cut it at the right spot, where we, as the readers, will say, "But what happens next?" but you, as the author, have a solid point to say, "Well, this is where you can imagine things." And I'll be honest, the stopping point's a hard thing that I have, so it's nice to be able to say, "Hey, here's a story I can read and have an indication of a good stopping point." Which this is all totally a kudos to you.
Enough about me, though. I cannot say how much I enjoyed this story. I'd mention how it seems that none of the teachers notice what's going on, but they're not very observant in the books or movies. Thanks for posting this story!
