Upset. - August 23rd 2019, 10:05 PM

I'm upset, my best friend was taken away and had to go to a eating disorder treatment center. This is our senior year in High School, we we're going to do everything together and we had 5 classes together. Now I feel so upset and lost without her. I'm going to miss her so much and dance and school are not going to be the same. I want her to get better, I'm just upset. Sorry.

Don’t be sorry! That’s upsetting in general. I hope your friend will be okay and that you still have a good year. Are you able to visit her or write letters?

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

I understand that you will miss her but it is natural for you to do so. I hope she will be ok and don't ever be sorry!

As Hypothesis. mentioned, are you able to visit her?

Thank you so much for you're replies and what you are saying. Her parents said that I can go with them in a few weeks when they go and see her and I can write letters and they will send them for me. Thank you again.

Hi Emma, sorry to hear it! I imagine the situation must be difficult for you. I believe sending letters, postcards from interesting places or small gifts via post is a great way to show you're thinking about her. When I miss someone I like to videocall them. And I hope you're be able to visit your friend, too! xxx Sue

Emma, I am so sorry to hear about your friend; but I am glad your parents are allowing you to join them when they go to visit her! I agree with Sue that sending postcards from interesting places would be something that could cheer her up, and even perhaps decorate it with a few stickers or antedotes that only you two know.

As for interacting with her, just treat her as you have always done in the past. Let her ask the questions and she will let you know if she's up for sharing anything. Look at her body language, is she looking at you? Is she withdrawing into a fetal position? Is she smiling and laughing, does it sound real or fake? These are things to take note of when you visit her in a few weeks.

I'm sorry your senior year isn't going to go the way you had planned, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't carry on with your classes and extracirriculars. I'm sure your friend would be thrilled to hear about whatever it is you've managed to perfect now that you haven't before.

Don't forget, she will come back!

All the best, I'm here if you want to chat or vent.

It's great to hear that your friends parents are allowing you to you. Have you been to visit her yet? If you did, how did it go?

I understand it may be a little bit of a wait but I'm sure it will be worth it.

It makes sense that you'll have to wait several weeks to see her. Her treatment team, her parents, and even herself want to make sure she is stable enough and is in the right frame of mind when you go visit.

Remember, she probably feels embarassed about this. Just treat her how you always have.

Best of luck.
