So I have a big problem.
I have a very good friend, and I hate to see her slowly dying from starvation and depression...
I am powerless. I don't know what to do to help her.
She used to be anorexic in HS for six months, then her mom sent her to therapy, and apparently that got better. But I recently found out she had an eating disorder, and she admitted she had been doing this for the past three years in cycles. So the whole story doesn't add up.
I think she never truly stopped, and it's in cycles. Thing is that she is in the denial, she says it's not a big deal, that she is gonna be okay, that she just needs a big change in her life... but judging on what she told me about her issues and her life in general and my knowledge of her, this is not something that will just go away. She hates herself
She has started losing her hair and colours have drained from her face, and she is very skinny. It's getting very worrying, as we are still wearing winter clothes (the other day, we went on a shopping spree, and we tried on spring/summer stuff... her bones
), and she is always tired... she never eats red meat/cheese/sugar-y stuff, only fish/green veggies/fruits.
What can I do? The day I pieced the clues together, we talked about it. She got angry at the end, because she genuinely thought it's only sadness, not a real disease or whatever, and she felt bad about telling me. So I stopped. No one from her family knows...
This is such an awful situation, it makes me so sad, she is a really good friend, and I hate that... i don't know what to do... so .. maybe one of you guys already dealt with someone and managed to help him or her....
