help her....

by sam

im 13,in 8th grade and have a friend, her name is Cynthia, she knows everything about me. and one night (may 15th) she told me she thought she might be anorexic.Cynthia told me she never went to the doctors. but now lyk two weeks ago (sept. 29) we were in gym class running the mile for a grade or whatever and she almostt passed out and it was like 89 degres out. but she was in the gym almosted blacked out and i was texting her in class and she told me she blacked out in her front yard and wouldnt wake up. she keeps telling me she eats but i dont believe her b/c she is getting skinnyer and she is already tiny. she doesnt look healthy and i try to talk to her but she keeps deenieing it. i wish she would tell me b/c im afraid for her life, she is getting really unhealthy. she kept telling me she would cry when her mom made her eat. one last thing Cynthia knows i cut myself and she wants me to tell an adult but i dont want to deal w/ the consequences....

3 questions...
1) is this healthy for her?
2) what should i do to help?
3) if she is anorexic, should i tell her she should tell
an adult?

please help me!!!!

Seek Help !

Hi Sam ,

I hate to hear that your friend is going through this , but if you are her friend and you are suppose to look
out for her best interest. You have to talk to an adult and let them know(does she go to school with you )
If so then this is great someone can really help her. This is not healthy for her at all it is a illness.
she is not going to tell because she may not think she has a problem, this is where you come in at . And
she maybe mad at you for a while, but once she gets help and better she will appreciate you and what you have done
I will keep both you and your friend in my prayers.
