Hello, yes but she won't speak about it. I am very very concerned about the weight loss and the fact that she has changed from being this happy, fun person to this morose thin woman. I just cannot believe that her husband thinks she is fine when I was truly shocked at her appearance. I know they are trying for a baby and she is having injections to help but surely this eating regime with the resultant weight loss is not helping her not is this addiction to running for miles every day.
She became angry and said there was nothing wrong. I'm afraid in my frustration I said there was and she looked anorexic and ill and why was her husband allowing her to be like this.
I know she has a general practice doctor and the specialist that is dealing with the injections. She was also seeing a specialist about her panic attacks she was having. She has a high powered job and travels all over the world and at one point became very afraid of flying. She was put on a mild anti depressant for this and I am not sure if she still takes this medication. She used to tell me everything but not now. She is such a personable person she has lots of very good friends in Barcelona but they are mostly shared friends. She has no family there. I feel so inadequate but what angers me most is her father who stayed with her last week. We are divorced and have an amical relationship,he told me she was thin but insisted she ate but it is all organic with salads and vegetables.
He agrees with me that she is painfully thin but he prefers to avoid having a fall out with her. He has always been like that whereas if I see something is wrong with either of my daughters, I become the tiger mother. I think the situation has gone beyond skirting round the issue and that is why I'm afraid the situation arose. I know I should have held back but I just couldn't bear to see her like that. Therefore. with regard to the relationship with her husband he thought it was fine although he thinks this obsession he has with nutrition is a step too far...but won't say anything
What can I do to help my daughter get out of this spiral of weight loss and addiction to running
Thank you doctor. It is not going to be easy to keep my distance knowing what is happening to her. I have actually just been having a conversation with my cousin and she agrees that all is far from well with our darling Lucy and has felt this for some time. I am going to speak to one of Lucy's friends, confidentially and see what they feel. It will be impossible for me to contact her doctor in Barcelona as I have no telephone numbers and they would not discuss their patient with me anyway. You have given me good advice and I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.
