Hi everyone, this blog takes a less fun tone than most on here, but I'm stuck right now and seeking advice from every possible source. This weekend at a party, a friend of mine, who I'll call Brittany, shocked me with a drunken confession. She told me she's been unable to eat a meal in the past month without throwin it up. I'm thankful for the information now, in hopes that I can help her overcome this affliction before serious problems develop from it. So, I'm calling on you, the blog readers of AMD, to please offer me any help you can. Have any of you had any experience in helping a friend through an eating disorder, and if so, how did you help? Anything you can offer will be appreciated. Thank You. +Phil

She need professional help. She some counselling, cause she might have problems with her idea of self image.

Talk her into seeing a doctor because eating disorders can become deadly if not treated. Although it could potentially be something other then an eating disorder but at any rate if she hasn't held down a meal in a month it needs to be looked into by a doctor. And if you can't get her to go and you can get in touch with her parents let them know about whats going on.

You want to help? The best thing - the only thing - you can do as a friend and as someone who obvioulsy cares is to get her to a physician as soon as possible. Once you have done that, you can be a support center for her, but spend some time getting information about how to do that!

another thought - more often than we like to think, what appears as an eating disorder on the surface can be something even more serious and life threatening...not that an eating disorder isn't...

Again, get her to help as soon as possible. You'll save her life!

Sending a note rather than spelling it out here.

The fact that she told you means she isn't too far gone yet.

Encourage her to get counseling....... right away.

Talk to her parents in confidence....... They need to know, but you don't want her to refuse to talk to you for "outing" her.

If you really want to help long term, you should probably go to counseling yourself so you have a better idea how to deal with this problem.

good luck
