Welcome,

I dont feel following her around is going to help. She will probably get defensive on you. I would try telling her you here to support her and if she wants to talk your there for her. Tell her this is all new to you and you need help to understand it. Be honest with your feelings. She needs to trust you and for you to trust her, ED is a big secret, trust doesnt come easily with it.

This is just my opinion, Im dealing with being anorexic. Talk here more, there others who can help.
Good Luck
Kate
