How long until she finds some pill-pushing quack to diagnose her with ADHD or narcolepsy and give her a script for 6 months' worth of Dexedrine? Stimulants are just what she needs- they kill your appetite and speed up your metabolism, and if you take too high a dose, usually make you shit out what little you do eat. She could also pray for literal days on end!Huh, and wouldn't you know it - "Eating disorders may derange normal pancreatic physiology, and may precipitate acute pancreatitis alone, or in combination with other etiologic factors." Moreover, restrictive eating is known to trigger hypothyroidism.
My impression is that Anna may need these meds for reasons that have nothing to do with her ostensible CF diagnosis.
