Judy, Thank you so much for the video. Powerful is not the word. No one should have to endure a lose of a child and especially from an eating disorder. Thank you for bringing Someday Melissa into view. I only hope it wakes alot of parents up to what may be going on right in their own worlds.
I saw this screening last week during ed awareness week. It was absolutely inspiring!! This was probably one of the ebst if not the best documentary that i have ever seen!! no tips, no glorifying the eating disorder. just honest truth on how it effects everyone. i have had an eating disorder for about 10 years and been in recovery now for about 5 years. it is definitely hard sometimes but this documentary make me want to fight even more!!! Not to sound cliche opr anything, but this movie will definitely change lives for the better!!! Words cannot thank you enough!
I attended the screening last night and it was so well done. After struggling on and off for 15 years I am finally in recovery and last night gave me the final push to get out there and start speeding the knowledge. There are too many of u suffering,..son those of us that can help need to start doing it! I know I am! Special thanks to everyone involved...I can't imagine how hard it was but I know so many great things will come out of it, and that is a blessing.
I was in treatment with Melissa, and I noticed today that her Facebook is not active anymore. I wanted to write a message to her, but instead I'll write on here. I saw a screening of the documentary today, and it turned out to be amazing. I have seen many documentaries about eating disorders, but none that have truly captivated the horrors and struggles of an eating disorder. This film sheds light on the struggles of the family and the eating disordered person themself. You guys really did make a movie that will change lives. As I was sitting watching the documentary, I felt like I was listening to a description of my own life and the troubles of my own family. It was absolutely beautiful. I guess I just wanted to say thank you to Judy and everybody else who was involved in the making of this film. And to Melissa: you really did inspire a movie that will change lives. I love you girl, and you'll always be a part of my heart.
I'm 25 and have been living with anorexia for 11 years, and seeing how you have transformed a terrible loss into a powerful message is seriously inspiring. Thank you!
I am going to a screening in April. After seeing the trailer, I am already so glad this film was made, for melissa, and for all of the people out there like me suffering from EDs. It shocks me that the majority of society and families do not take this disorder seriously. I hope this film ignites people to spread the message that eating disorders are serious and should be handled that way.
Thank you for making this film.
Thank you for making this film.
I have found out about somedaymelissa.org through an obituary that was printed out sometime around december 2011. Although Melissa died in May, I found this obituary as a hidden message for me to take a look at the website and hidden message. I have background in experiencing the loneliness and hell of anorexia, and at times, it is hard to explain what it is like to people who do not understand. I would never want them to .get it.", but I can hope to spread some sort of awareness and compassion. Thank You
I heard about this movie awhile a go when it was still in the works. Today I just heard about it again when I went to see my nutritionist. I'm so excited for the movie, especially now that I'm fully recovered!
I have a daughter who is now 18 but she has been fighting since 5th grade. She has been in treatment alreay but so far no hope. I feel lost but after watching this i realized I am not alone. As a mom I feel hopeless against this sickness. She doesn't want to get better. It is tough for all of us. I just don't know what to do at this time.
I just watched the trailer and my heart is broken for Melissa and for her family. It brought back so many painful raw memories. I was lucky, my daughter has survived an eating disorder but I still have that fear that I had that I could lose her any day-that the eating disorder would win.
