    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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
