Just a quick update from my last post, then I'm headed to bed after a long day. My aunt and uncle did visit on Sunday. Other than looking slightly less gaunt from the last time I saw her, my aunt looked pretty much the same as I had remembered her. It was kind of sad, but at the same time, there was one noticeable difference--she was happier looking. I know a lot of this is from getting out of the school system and doing more what she wants. I know she is really enjoying her therapy dog work, agility, and rally, as well as her volunteering jobs. Plus, she travels quite a bit too.
It makes me wonder at times if I am wrong. Maybe she really is that thin? Maybe my perception is too clouded from the ED? Even if she is thin, perfectionistic, rigid, and a private person, that doesn't necessarily label her with an ED. Still though, it makes me wonder.
In any case, the visit was brief and nice, consisting of a tour of the house, meeting the dogs, and visiting my workplace. Then, they were off to go home. We'll see if this leads to a renewed interest in relationship.
