My 33 year old sister has been struggling for 3 years. To me all the signs point to OCD, isolation to perform ritualistic behaviors that relieve overwhelming anxiety, diet that doesn't consist of much more than strawberries, paleo-granola, and protein powder, (she has a diagnoses of anorexia), she plucks out all the hairs on her head (she is bald) . She and the rest of the family are in a strong denial. Parents from the Middle East and have stigma on mental health, they willl hold out for eternity that she has an undiagnosed condition - no logic supports this.
Has a family member ever gone through this? what has worked to get beyond the denial?
