I have a friend (whom I've lost touch with, but has recently come back into my life) and she is EXTREMELY anorexic. She has come outright and told everyone she is 64 lbs.....YES she is only 4 lbs more than her 6 year old daughter. She knows she is gravely ill, but is refusing help. (long story) My question:
What should I say to her?? How should I act around her? Do I ignore the issue and just chat about our kids or should I have a heart to heart with her? She's been in and out of hospitals dozens of times and leaves AMA....I have never been close to anyone w/anorexia and I'm not sure if talking about it with her will help/hurt her....I am still trying to be the same friend I was before, but her condition is heartbreaking to me and I'm having trouble not crying whenever we talk or hug. I want to re-establish our friendship, but don't know how to act "normal"....HELP please!!
