she'd had a problem at birth with her stomach i think and had had lots of surgery. she had been fed by a tube into her tummy and had just got too reliant on it i guess.
there was a bit of a mad relationship going on between her and her mother; because her mother had ben so worried about her she did lots for her all the time. she didn't dress herself or anything.3 she was still wearing nappies but i don't know whether that was part of her condition.
they found she had a form of autism which made it hard for her to learn to eat/copy other people.
it was really sad but quite frustrating to watch.

she had some illness to start with I think, but it was resolved and there was no biological reason, it was a psychological barrier. She went abraod to a specialist facility but it was hard going. And Fox is right.

The story of Tia McCarthy, a seven-year-old girl with a rare disorder in which her oesophagus and stomach are unconnected. Despite corrective surgery, she has never eaten a morsel
