Exclamation anorexic friend?! - April 25th 2010, 12:45 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

so this very serious and i'm in vast need of help and advice. a friend of me recently decided that in order to lose weight she'll throw up everything she eats. i've explained to her a million times the dangers but she won't listen. she's too stubborn. unfortunately, her parents relationship and most importantely her relationship with them is very bad so even if i tell them they won't do anything. and her founding out that her parents don't care will make things even worse. so, so talking to her parents is not a solution. two other friends and i decided to talk to a teacher but we still think that this won't help much. it's a dead end. we don't know what to do. please, help us!!!

Hey there,

What you and your friends have decided to do is really great. You need to either tell a teacher or tell your school counsellor. They will be able to help, it's their job. By telling them you are helping your friend a lot. From there, you just need to support her, check in on her, and make sure that she is okay. It is really good that you've caught this early, some people can have an ED for months/years without getting any help.

So yes, tell a teacher, and they will be able to advise you from there. Also, for future reference, what your friend is doing is actually called bulimia (anorexia would be if she wasn't eating at all).

PM me!

Dreaming about the day
When you wake up and find
That what you're looking for
Has been here the whole time.
