Joanna came home from the Radcliffe Hospital, under Dr James' care, with anorexia: " they could do no more for her and we should keep an eye on her during the nightsm as she might die"!. She was down to 4+ stone, thought she was fat, and each meal time lasted an eternity. The one glimmer of hope was Dr. Jill, our local G.P., who Joanna liked. Eventually Dr Jill persuaded Dr James to recommend treatment at Farm Place

Ironically we were desparately trying to fatten Joanna up whilst at the same time Stephen was despaerately trying to get down to near 11 stone for his lightweight match!!: he used to sweat in a black plastic bag just before weigh-ins
