Here' some background info: She is almost 16 and has been eating nothing but vegetables for about a month and has gone from about 150 lbs to 115. She lives with her dad and came here to visit for Thanksgiving. We went to my brothers house for Thanksgiving and my brother called today and said they saw some "evidence" in the bathroom. She had been in the bathroom for awhile and I had wondered about it but never suspected anything.
Also, she is VERY depressed. There is NO light in her eyes at all. My ex, who is a very good , loving father, is going to take her to a therapist. My ex-father-in-law is a Psychiatrist and he prescribed her some anti-depressants.
My question to anybody that has had some experience or knowlege about bulimia is how do I approach this? She lives 500 miles from me. She has always been very closed off about her feelings and it takes an act of Congress to get anything out of her. So I really don't know how to approach her.
How hard is it to recover from Bulimia? Please give me any advice that you know of about bulimia and please no flames...this is hard enough. Thank you.
