so last Sunday night (a week ago) I was really upset so I called one of my friends she was alunderstanding and listened to me crying but then she was like yeah I've felt kinda bleh and fat
lately. so I kind of prodded and we talked about body image and stuff and I got it out of herthat she had made herself throw up once, and that she had also cut herself. I know she needs serious
help; I told my mom, who has a pshycology background on tuesday and we decided I need to get my friend to gotalk to someone, but I need advice on how. I tried on Wednesday, but she wouldn't budge. I didn't
mention the cutting or the throwing up, but I kind of impplied. She is going away to bording schoolso I asked if she wanted to talk to someone about that, and then body image issues. but she said
she would rather just talk to me and our friends. I told her that I could only help her so much, whichshe countered with she could only help me with being GLBTQ so much and I was like that is why I calk
to other people but she wouldn't budge.
I'm want to try again tomarrow, has anyone else been in this situation? how should I approach her?
I don't think she will commit suicide or anything like that anytime soon, but I really need to get
her to talk to someone, any advice would be appreciated.
