Trying to Help My Friend with Eating Disorder, Not Working

February 14, 2012

“My friend has an eating disorder and I really feel a sense of responsibility to help her. For one thing, I used to have an eating disorder myself, and I know exactly what’s happening in her head. I have a lot of ideas that I think will help her, but she just won’t listen. In fact, it seems to be straining our relationship. What can I do to help my friend?”
