My best friend is suffering from what I think is anorexia. He's 23 and about 180cm tall and weighs 61kg. He's very picky about food but loves to serve and watch other people eat. He used to be really overweight in High School. He only eats low fat food, mainly salad or things that doesn't contain any oil or fat. Even though he hardly eats at all and only eats healthy, low calorie food, he still goes to the bathroom to throw it all up. He weighs himself about three times a day. Although he looks like a skeleton with skin, he still believes he looks ok, and doesn't want to gain any weight. To make things worse, he is also most definitely an alcoholic. He drinks and gets drunk every single night for the past two years. (mostly on cheap wine) He says he can't sleep when he's sober. He gets nightmares. He hates being alone, and sleeps over when his dad is out of town. His parents just separated and his two brothers left town. Going to counseling is not an option he would NEVER ever go. We talk a lot about his drinking problem, but he's very stubborn, we never talked about his food disorder. I really wouldn't write to you if I wouldn't be so worried. I would like to know what I can do to help him. We are together everyday, but it's getting hard on me too. It hurts seeing a friend in trouble. And I too started to drink more since we're together everyday.
Please, please advice.
Din vän har allvarliga problem, men verkar inte vilja göra något åt dem. Riktigt obehagligt är det att han drar in dig i alkoholdrickandet. Skaffa vänner som inte har en sådan destruktiv inverkan på dig, innan det är försent. Web4health.info har skrivit mycket om ätstörningar och alkoholism. Läs de sidorna, så får du en ökad förståelse för dessa missbruksproblem.
