soo small you were right. it's been only a few days since that post about difficult child and lack of food intake and it's worsened already just in a matter of days. past few days minimal food, half a burger i think. today nothing. so knowing i have to hold out till tuesday to get pysch on board, than thursday for her appointment. and getting medication i had to do something. she has begun limiting her intake of water now also. so, i ran to store and bought carnation breakfast drinks. she used to love them. i wanted to get ensure but i knew she wouldn't drink that too thick. sure enough made her one and she drank it. we went to zoo today, a great 3 hours together. she fell asleep in truck on way back. woke up and said do i feel this way because i cant' eat anymore? i said what do you think???? she said yup, but i just dont' know what's wrong with-me and what the problem suddenly is that now my anxiety is in my throat??????!!!!!!! i gave best explanation i could, explained importance of nutrition etc. dont' really know what else to say. i will be heading up to school monday though to give them a heads up. she eats nothing in school all day and doesnt' eat breakfast at least didnt' last week. and she doesnt' drink water. so i think they should know incase she gets weak, etc. who knows what will happen. i knew heading into teen years with-a BiPolar (BP) kid would be challenging. i guess i just didnt' expect this already. eleven to twelve are usually the "cut" years although so many kids have eating disorders. i think those shakes will keep her at bay till i can get to a professional. weighed her today and she's down to 102, and she's 5 3' now. she's lost about eleven pounds since last dr appointment two half weeks ago. the weight is just flying off of her.
