The siblings discuss growing up in an affluent but emotionally witholding household, and how their struggles with depression and her eating disorder ultimately brought them closer together.  They talk about the difficulty of connecting with an emotionally shutdown mother consumed with presenting a facade of normalcy to the outside world.  They discuss John's childhood self-harming, Megan's non-purging bulimia and compulsive exercising and starving, and the importance of finally asking for help from people who could emotionally provide it.
