Not eatting, making self throw up when upset and only 9 (LONG) UPDATE
My dd is 9, she's adopted and has a mulititude of problems. She throws fits when not getting her way, lies uncontrollably, and has to be in control of everything and everyone. She's on meds for the ADD and the docs won't change anything until she is retested for the ADD and tested for anxiety, depressioin, bi-polar, etc. The process is going to take months up to a year to get in to get this taken care of. She's now being teased by other children because of the fit throwing and basically anything else as she's labeled herself and now an easy target.
The latest is her weight, they are telling her she's over weight. She is thin as a rail 53" tall, and only 53 lbs. Since the summer has gone on she's gotten skinny, sickly looking. I took her to the doctor the other day and they said she is underweight below 0% of her age and height, and when she found out she started cheering. I've been forcing her to eat as she tells me she's always full and not hungry. I bought some protein shakes to add to her meals to help gain weight. On top of this if she gets in trouble (not listening, lying, etc) she starts making herself sick (complaining of headaches and now getting so upset throwing up). I've contacted her doctor as the one we saw the other day wasn't her doc just one that was available. I'm waiting on a call back but can someone give me some hints on what to do in the meantime, or tell me what they think is going on. I think it's some type of anxiety but the docs don't want to do anything until she's retested but I don't think I can wait that long.
The clinic that saw her and said she was underweight was a new clinic, I took her back to the doctor that's been seeing her for years. Although she is skinny they aren't concerned as she loses this much weight every summer. They have talked to her about what can happen to her body if she continues not to eat, the doc thinks she's eatting less because of the heat as my children are very active. He also put her on an anxiety med to help with the stress she is dealing with as this all started when the daycare kicked her out for lying. A counselor hit her in the face but since the daycare can't find anyone that saw the incident they are calling her a liar and told her not to come back. For the past few weeks she's just been at home with a sitter so not getting to interact with her peers.
