Can you help me save my child's life
Organized by: Jeannie McCarty
There comes a time in life where you have to reach out and ask for help when something has gotten so far out of your reach.My son Johnathon O'kelley has had a very bad eating disorder for goin on 11 years and it has now become extremely severe I have seeked help in the past due to finances it has been limited and unable to complete. I managed to get him involved with Saulbacher clinic at the beginning of this year down at the beach but due to them not specializing in eating disorders there is only so much they are able to do they can only offer 30 min counseling once a week prescribe antidepressants and never weigh him when he comes in but that is all they can do no offense to the clinic at all but it isn't enough at all. This is a very serious condition as you can see in the pictures it causes much grief in many aspects. Due to as follows people perceive him as having AIDS, or being a crack and meth head, or pill popper, due to him being down to 87 pounds never perceived as a eating disorder AKA-anorexia i have seen it all with him abuse of laxatives,water pills,diet pills, over exercising, no eating weeks and weeks at a time and even bulimia at the extreme I know times are hard all I am asking is for any donations at all so I can get the extensive and professional treatment he truly needs at a rehabilitation clinic because I'm a mother who is watching her child slowly die and I feel like it's out of my control anorexia will kill just like any other disease if left untreated this is one of the hardest things I have had to do I thank you all so much for your help and taking the time to read this.
