Dear health blogs - I need your help,
My sister (who is 16) was “venting” and she told me that she just wants to “feel pretty” and that being thin is the only way she’ll feel pretty. She also confessed that she goes through periods where she doesn’t eat and that when she was away at camp she would regularly skip meals.
I’m honestly shocked and don’t know what to say. I’m over 1,000 miles away, so I can’t help her. Part of me wants to tell my parents, but I don’t want to betray her trust either.
Advice is more than welcome. Please message me. I’m so worried. My sister is my life and it breaks my heart to hear her say that. I’ve been crying non-stop for the past half-hour.
Please, please, I don’t even know what to do.
