ok so before i say my friend's problem, heres some background info on her:
- she's really 'popular' at our high school, and she has tons of friends
- she tells me all the time that her self-esteem is way too high
- she's not stick-thin, but she doesn't have any teenage pudge either
so a couple days ago, we were walking to lunch, and she told me that the night before, she'd eaten too much and purged. she assured me that she wouldn't do it again, but i'm not sure if i believe her. she'd told me that once she'd thrown up, she was able to move on and do other things like homework. besides, i'd read an article about adolescent girls, and this one girl with a bulemia problem started the exact same way. the day after she told me about her temporary bulemia, she missed school. she told me that she was sick, but i'm still extremely worried about her.
what can i do to keep it from happening again?
what do i do if/when it does happen again?
i'm so scared for her...
