My sister with age 14 had anorexia. Now shes 26 but still bulimic. She's living in another country studing music and lives alone. She was with me for 10 days and as soon as i say something about eating shes not talking with me. She says that shes in therapy but i dont know what she do with this topic. It seems shes ok to live like this. How can i help her without loose her???
Actually this is a very sensitive situation. You should look around for someone in her city who knows her well and in whom she can confide. This person can act as a link between your sister and her treatment.
First of all your sister has to accept that she has a problem. Then she will be treated through behavior therapies, nutritional guidance, medications to control hunger, food satiety, and exercise and yoga. Take care!
