How do you personally describe an eating disorder?

*sexi~lexi* 2011/08/10 08:29:23
I believe my cousin has an eating disorder because she doesn't eat somedays and when she does it's only little snacks. She only weighs 90 something pounds but still thinks herself fat. I've told her that i thought she had a eating disorder before but she ignores me. What do you think an eating disorder starts? Do you think i'm right or imaging things? Comment below and tell me what you think. Please no hating.
You!

    i have had an eating disorder, and it has to do with either she was picked on as a child by people at school or her parents, or maybe she just sees to many photoshoped pictures of celebrities.
    dont let her ignore you, if shes 90 pounds, shes going to get worse. and get very sick and maybe die.
    tell her how beautiful she is and how much of a wonderful person she is, and tell her that you love her and you dont want her to hurt herself.
    but her self esteem will never get any better. trust me, i know.
    so you have to remind her every other day.
    get her some help. talk to her as a friend, and let her know that she can talk to you, and you wont judge her. dont get mad or she wont talk to you anymore about the situation.
    hope this helped (:

    I DON'T. Am I'm not a psychologist, so I won't even try. If she feels she needs help, she has to go get some on her own.

    See that's what i think because i don't think she'll start getting better untill she decides to get help, but i want to make sure she doesn't end up hurting herself by starvation.

    Other than discussing the issue with your parents, I'd stay out of it. Her denial will rule her decisions until she wakes up. Worrying on the part of her mother is not enough; time for her to be a parent. You, personally, can only do so much.

    it really sounds like shes got one. It starts from low self esteem and can end with death. You need to get her help.

    it may be rocky for a while but you need to think about her health before your friendship for right now
