Concerned about a former teacher - December 1st 2011, 08:17 AM

I have been hearing that a teacher I had last year, one that I was really close to, may have an "eating disorder". She is 26 and I go to her for everything, I honestly love her! I have heard from my friends who have her this year that she eats a lot then takes diet pills. She was very skinny the way she was, so I can't imagine her wanting to loose more weight. I've also heard that she brags about being [Edited] and tells the 12 and 13 year olds she coaches at school to loose weight and not eat. She is getting maried in the spring and is marrying a man who has a lot of money. She is incredibly beautiful as well but I never thought all of that would go to her head. She wasn't like this at all last year, so it seems like she has changed for the worst I'm honestly very concerned! I have heard these stories from multiple people so I'm thinking that at least some of it is true, but there is no way for me to know unless I ask her.

I really care about this woman but since she was my teacher I'm not sure if there is anything I can do. I want to talk to her about what I have heard and find out for myself if there is any truth to it but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea. What do you think I should do?

What's the worst thing that could result from talking to your former teacher? Being laughed/yelled at? Doesn't seem like much of a worse-case scenario to me, considering that you have the option of never seeing her again if she's hostile.

I would go visit her, start to bond with her again. And If you notice anything wrong, I would mention that you heard some rumors about it and wanted to ask. Dont make it all serious though, she may shut down and decide not to tell you - Talk to her about it but laugh alittle. Say it in a playful manner and not an insulting one.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
