hi! me yay always a new and exciting issue to share....... just wondering anyone have first hand experience with-an eating disorder, how it began etc. difficult child hasn't really been eating much past several mos. it started in june. she is convinced her throat will close up she says and she'll die. hmmmm even brought her to dr. initially because i was like hey maybe it's strep. anywhooo iv'e come to notice and haven't brought any attention to it at all to difficult child, nor have i commented about her lack of food intake. my attitude she'll eat when she's hungry and if it's for attention i'm not giving it. so, she's lost an incredible amt of weight this summer, lost 8lbs. since wedding also. she's totally thin and small framed. doesn't look sickly at all. weights' perfect dr. said. yet my parents and i have come to notice (she spent week with-them in summer) she's not eating much. doesnt' do breakfast, nor lunch and will at some point later in day shove in some carbs. she isnt' throwing up. yet we have all noticed how she really likes how she looks lately. she's getting curves and she's amazed at how much weight she lost. and we all are beginning to see the beginning of an eating disorder. if anyone has experience does it start this way?? she's always been weight obsessed. when was on medications would talk about the "thin" girls etc. today for instance she ate: 2 bites of a fried egg this morning and a bite of toast, than 5 animal crackers after school. that's it. she begged me to take her for pizza so we went out and she claimed her throat was giong to close up junk again i simply ignored her. thanks!!!
