My daughter is 19. She was diagnosed with anorexia/bulemia at 15. She was down to 84 but never got so bad that we had to hopitalize her. She went to therapy for over a year, a nutritionist that gave her the boot because she wouldn't listen, and I personally made sure she ate everyday, making weight gaining shakes, actually changed the dynamics of our whole family because her disease was eating us alive, I even finally lost over 40 pounds because I was binge eating. She's been doing great for a long time, eating whatever, gaining weight, was happy, made lots of new friends, talks to us and seemed to be doing wonderful. She has a hiatal hernia from the purging and was on Nexium for a long time, she stopped taking it and her stomach started hurting so we went back to the doc who found erosions in her esophagus, and put her back on Nexium. When she stopped taking it her stomach pains/nausea got really bad so they said to get back on Nexium again. She's doing that but feels awful. She hasn't eaten anything but crackers and bread for a week because she's afraid to upset her stomach, when I said put some peanut butter on the crackers she said that had too much fat, something she wouldn't have said a month ago, she's losing weight again and I'm so worried. She very well could be afraid to eat food that will upset her stomach, that's logical. Personally, she seems depressed more- college not really being as awesome as she hoped, us not being able to afford to send her where she wants, her mild learning disabilities making it hard to take many hours- I don't know- am I overanalyzing this? I worry that she's never stopped throwing up and that's why her throat and stomach are so messed up but she seemed to get so healthy mentally and physically. I'm writing a book here, but I just wondered if any of this struck a bell with any of you and if you had any insight. Thanks!
