    doctors and insurance companies about coverage for my daughter who is anorexic. No coverage no way no how on your own. Doctor is very sorry. Insurer is very sorry.

    As father of insured, very frustrated and not believing well of any plan that saves private insurance companies. So my reality is that insurance is useless. Because it is all about the money. My money which I don't have enough of to provide care for my daughter. So yes, I would like to see if a fight for single payer could get us there because I am personally desperate.

      Hang in there.  I have a daughter.  I would be the same as you are.

      Are there any 12 step programs that can help her?

        There is actually a very good program here. It relies on a period of hospitalization to regain weight and then daily monitoring and has been successful. There is  new thinking about anorexia that is being embraced by the care community of doctors, but unfortunately not by the insurance.

        Sorry again, just not a very good day for me.
