In Reply to: Help for my sister posted by Chris on December 28, 1999 at 12:49:41:

: My sister suffered through anorexia when she was 10 years old. She was hospitalized many times with the disease but finally managed to pull through it. She has maintained a healthy weight since. However, I think she is starving herself once again. She had a baby almost 5 months ago and has lost all the "baby weight". She is continuing to lose weight and is beginning to show the signs of anorexia. I don't know how to help her now. She denies that it is becoming a problem but I don't want it to become deadly before trying to help her. I need some suggestions on how to help!!!!

hey guy
i think it is encouraging you are trying to help your sister. i've been battling weight problems myself for a long time. i know what wt looks good on me and i am happy with. that's about 125-130. it takes all my energy to stay in that range. i've never had a kid, but i imagine that quick wt gain, along with everyone asking how much u gain or have lost is going to have impact. besides that, it is a controlling thing. and with a new baby, it is ALOT of stress. anyway, maybe offer her help cleaning (not cooking, i hate when people force food!) tell her in a gentle way, that u remember how hard it was 4 her, and you want to help with the baby wearing her out. maybe offer a babysit so she can get a bath or whatever. anyway, good luck, but that's my thought for what it's worth
