My 17 year old daughter has an eating disorder - not sure what type - She was an extremely sporty girl, playing numerous types of sports both in and out of school. She was studying for her A levels and hoping to do a degree in sport at uni. Her ED has taking over her life. She has stopped attending school because she cant focus on anything except food. Her diet became very restricted, food had to be arranged in a certain way on her plate, virtually no carbs and no fats. She is now unable to do any sports of any kind except doing weights at the gym which she does every day if she can muster the strength to go. She is very depressed, and recently started bingeing in the evenings - having 8 bowls of cereal and anything else she can find, even things she doesn't/didn't even like! She has a great phobia of sickness/vomiting and always has, but last night she ate sooo much she was sick. I'v read posts on here mentioning ENDOs, what is this please? We are extremely worried parents and have had an assessment with CAMHS but as yet not actually had any pro-active help. She is deteriorating and need to get help quickly - any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated
