About a year ago, my daughter started to lose weight. She explained she wanted to be slim-ish for her prom which was in June. When prom came she had dropped to 7 stone, I told her that it was enough and if she carried on losing I would take her to the Doctors, she carried on losing so I did as I said. They referred her to camh's as the weight continued to fall. I have been taking her now for the last 6 months, She left school in July and started college in September. She now weights 5.7 stone. She is deeply unhappy with life, has little or no self-esteem and is now not even allowed to college. The Councillor has been okay, but obviously it's not working. She see's a psychiatrist this week for the first time and we have talked about medication and even a hospital stay.. I and her mother have had literally 100's of conversations, we have tried everything we possible could to make her change her mindset and now realize that nothing has made any difference. She has her bloods and an Ecg every other week and theirs even been talk of a pacemaker in case her heart stops... This is obviously distressing and I'm at a loss on what to do next! Any advice from anyone is appreciated. It's an awful illness and I would like to help her fight the demon in her head without making things worse...!
