Leigh Akin
Anorexic and still struggling

Anorexic for 15 years, Leigh needs your prayers and support right now. She needs strength and hope and guidance in choosing the path she is to follow.

My friend Leigh has been anorexic for about 15 years now. She has her good days and bad days, but lately-- it's only the bad days. Every day is a struggle against her own mind, as to whether or not she eats. And if she does eat, whether or not to keep it in, rather than purging. After all these years-- this is beyond her control now. She needs more intensive help than outpatient therapy, yet she won't allow herself to be taken care of because she doesn't believe she 'deserves' it. Once a very spiritual person, she no longer carries that same light about her.

Please pray for Leigh's continued recovery, both in therapy and at home. Pray for her strength to overcome her addiction to the scale and food and weight loss. Please also pray for her to find herself, and the path she is meant to take.
