So I think my little sister is suffering from Anorexia in the first stages (we discovered this a month ago), she is just losing weight right now and everytime we assure her to eat she starts crying, I really need Help!! we took her to the doctor but is not working, I just need some advice so I can treat her and help her even to go to the doctor or maybe to start eating again. thanks so much :(

thanks so much!! she seemed optimistic while talking to the doctor, its been 2 weeks now and she is doing the same thing, eating a little and getting angry everytime we say she has to eat more, she is losing weight and she is depressed, she rarely smiles, the doctor just gave her a talk, I know maybe I am anxious but it keeps getting worse and I do not wanna stand up just watching, my mom is thinking in change doctors..

i dont think talking to the doc once is going to do all that much unless she has already decided herself to change.
