Iam a freshman in college. My friend is in high school. I am good friends with the whole family. Over a year ago I mentioned to my friend's mom that I was worried about my friend's eatinf habits. Her mom said that it was only a phase. A year later I see more signs of anorexia. Her parents wont listen although we are all worried. What do I do next? I want to keep the friendships that I have with the family. But I can't let my friend waste away.

I am a mom of a 14 year old with a eating disorder. Have you talked to your friend about how you feel? Try telling her parents again and tell them why you think she may have an eating disorder. Tell them about the signs you see that make you think that, Look on the internet and print out some information about anorexia for them and let them see if the signs are there. Or if you know her counselor at school maybe you could talk to her about it and she could talk to the parents. My daughter told me but that is not usually the case. But I also saw she was losing weight and kept tell her not to lose anymore that her bones were starting to stick out and that is when she told me. She has been struggling for 1 1/2 years. Please try and talk to some one before her body starts shutting down. Hopfully her Mom will listen to you. Just tell her of your concerns. Everyone should have a friend like you.

Crap her parents they are just trying to convence themselves that thier child is fine. Ast her about it and keep asking her until she craks. But be sure that she does have an ed before you start saying she has it.
