Thanks for the response, my friend daughter has been in counceling for approx close to two years, she is so disfunctional that she has quit her job approx a year ago and is currently in a day program that has her eat 700 calories a day but when she is home she refuses food, she claims it takes 4-5 years for recovery, I just feel if they can get hold of the depression she might be able to fight the anorexia
Hi Judy, I am sorry to hear about your friends daughter. Unfortunately, this is becoming a trend with younger people these days.
You state that the girl is in a day program? Perhaps, it may be time for your friends to consider inpatient treatment for her. There are many good places that specialize in this and while she would be there they can also treat her for depression. Maybe, the day program could give them a referral or advice on this.
