Charlotte is the voice that reaches across the world to hold my hand, and my heart, makes me spit and choke with laughter, cry with shared pain and believe in something bigger than I could ever have imagined. She is both brave and vulnerable. She is brilliant and silly. She is my friend and I love her dearly.
I have never met Charlotte. Yet, I consider her to be a friend. She has offered me such valuable support, a listening ear, a guiding light at times, when I felt so desperate in my efforts to help my own daughter. I don't believe that I have ever met anyone so selfless as Charlotte. At a time when she could so easily be thinking about herself, she continues to offer priceless support to others. She is a rock and the wave of love sent to Charlotte from across the globe will be felt for a long time to come.
Charlotte is an AMAZING woman, mother, mentor and individual. I respect her unrelenting strength, courage and perseverance. She is bright beyond belief and knows how to communicate with others in a direct, honest and authentic manner so that they can hear what she is saying while being respectful. She has this unique way of leaving a positive and lasting impact on everyone that has been in contact with her even across the miles, continents away and through the internet. I love this woman! xxxx
Charlotte was a "rock in a frock" when our family was in a very dark place and she supported us in ways she will never know. She is empathetic, inspirational, gutsy and articulate. She is a passionate advocate for the eating disorders community ; action orientated and straight talking. She is also a great Mum and a lovely, lovely friend.
Lady B scares the bejesus out of me (not many do!) and I adore her all the more for it. An inspiration in every way. I want to be like her when I grow up ....

Charlotte has always seemed so BUSY and successful, such fun and rather mad. Her gift of the gab was honed selling children's clothes, her sense of the ridiculous by making and selling fine liqueurs. But that was surely all just training for what has clearly been her calling, "advocacy" work (I had to look it up) using all her considerable skills to make life a bit easier for other people. Actually, that sounds a bit like my Mum and I can't give her a higher accolade than that.
Charlotte was that plucky lady from the UK who said the things I didn't want to hear at the time. She was blunt....she was right! I think I cried to Laura in a couple of emails that Charlotte was so mean, she wasn't mean, she was helping me and my D sooooo much. Charlotte is a wonderful advocate for eating disorders and I wish I had have of her strength and courage.
It's weird to think that I consider Charlotte to be one of my closest friends when we have never met! She is amazing. Nuff said.
Charlotte is amazing, it never seemed to matter what time I went on line needing help she was there offering support, advice and telling me I could do it. I will forever be grateful to Charlotte.
I knew Charlotte a long time ago. She gave me the best advice anyone ever could. It was a difficult time for me and it triggered a light bulb moment! I then knew what I had to do and was eternally grateful for her help. She will be in my thoughts and my love goes to her family. X
Charlotte was the first person to reply to a post of mine on ATDT. Understanding, warm, very funny and direct. She helped save my daughters life. We met only once, she was exactly as you would imagine. A truly amazing, wonderful human being. And brave, incredibly brave and selfless. She called me her friend, a fact I'm immensely proud of. She will be missed by so many, family, friends at home and globally. Love you Charlotte.
