Staying hungry to maintain control

Hi guys,

I was brought here to seek advise on how to help my mum mainly, she has borderline personality disorder (I was also diagnosed with this last year) and when she isn't stable she just will not eat, she uses it to maintain control of her life.
Last year the doctor declared her malnourished due to the eating disorder she has developed with her condition.

I wondered if anyone else has or knows someone with this same problem, as it is slightly complex.

And is there a way I can make sure my mum still stays healthy (via the right vitamins or drinks/milkshakes) without forcing her to eat.

Thank you

hi Luna :welcome:!

not exactly the same problem no
I think maybe you can ask her doctor for advice
about how to help her

different disorders require varying degrees of encouragement
so the doctor would be first port of call
and then on to a carers support group perhaps

Hi Zoe,

Thank you for responding. I will give that a go. Sometimes it's just knowing where to start first, thank you.
