Re: Anorexia

We will make sure the R is OK.


I'm speaking to her on Thursday and let her know she's not alone, and if she need me I'll be there.

Re: Anorexia

That's lovely and I'm sure her Mum will appreciate that Hom3r as a parent I know that I would. It's just a pity that R and your niece broke up as R sounds a lovely caring girl and very mature for her years and who know's they might get back together in the future, if not I hope they remain friends.

Re: Anorexia

My mums was at my sisters yesterday, lookinh after my niece and making sure she eats, R turned up with some flowers for K and collect some of her stuff.

My mum asked her how she was, she started to answer then burst into tears.

My mum told her that she's not alone and that we will all look after her.

Re: Anorexia

Such a sad and frustrating illness. I have been reading all your posts Hom3r and my heart goes out to you all. I may not be posting much at the moment but please know that I am here most days, hoping to hear that that things improve.

Hang in there, you are one of the most caring people it has been my pleasure to know and if there is anything I can do, even if it's just giving you a shoulder to lean on I will be here for you.

Re: Anorexia

I spoke to R today and told her again that she's not alone, and I'll look after you.


I said about on saturdays if she wants go to the cinema, drink or meal. She seemed ok.


Earlier she had a blood test and wanted someone to go with her as she doesn't feel to good after.

just as well I went as she nearly passed out, so walking her when she was able to walk I supported her arm as we walked, I joked about people think my mum and me are married, so I said I wonder what people think when they see us walking is is lucky gut or sugar daddy that got a laugh.

Plus she said that she is staying down here and not going back home to Glasgow.


Plus on the positive side my nice got 2 A's in her first years A-Level results, shes just go
t the BTEC Law result to come.

I think it's the end of the road for her and her GF. they've not seen each other for a week, and my niece say's she has't missed her.

But does she really, and could this make the situation worse.

As it stands unless she is admitted next week she will be comming on holiday with us, but we will measure all the food, she eats not her.


Talking to my mum I felt bad in saying "I hope she does get admitted as it could be the best option."
Don't force her to eat, be mindful of what she does eat and if you can find out what worries her most about what she eats this can help.

My daughter became obsessed with exercise whilst she was in the midst of anorexia. Fortunately this gave us a way of encouraging her to eat protein rich foods and carbs so she got the energy to exercise. She is still very wary of too much butter or oil, but otherwise is well and now does not exercise excessively. She walks a lot and cycles in moderation.

Whilst she was away at uni, we used to eat together over skype. It meant I could see what she was eating and suggest energy boosters.

Also getting the right therapist is essential.

She's not being forced, but she measures as close to the exact weight and measurement as possible, and she has been know to sneak of and exercise.

I was with her this morning and my sister had prepared everything I needed while I was there.

She did spend a lond time in the shower, i tried to listen to see if I could anything out of the norm.


She is seeing a therapist.
