Help please my sister is sick

She's starving herself she doesn't eat and she's 14 and she weighs 109 lbs and she wants to be 105 and then 90 if she can. She's really scaring us what can we do?

Tell your parents immediately, she needs a therapist and counseling for anorexia. Eating disorders are no joke. They can even be deadly. My ex had a ling battle with bulemia and my moms friend died from anorexia. You need to get her help, no matter how mad at you she gets. Good Luck & God bless.

Good that's great. She might hate you. But I know you'd rather her hate you and be alive & healthy than love you and die. If you ever have any other questions, concerns or just wanna talk don't hesitate, okay doll.

Take her to the hospital. She's suffering from anorexia nervosa it sounds like.

If she continues after that and gets down to an unhealthy weight you can have her checked into a hospital until she gains enough weight back. Have her start going to a counselor to talk through the disorder and encourage her to eat, but be respectful... it's important to know that she likely does not know that she is too skinny. (Body dysmorphic syndrome)

Also, show her this video:

Ok I just showed her and she got really mad and yelled that it's not getting out of hand like that
Report as
Let her know that even though she feels like she has control, when you have a disorder you don't have any control. It can easily get out of hand without them realizing.

Talk to your parents or your guidance counselor Your counselor is actually great help. She/He can help you tell your parents or even help your sister and get her the help she needs. She does need to go to the doctors to.

She needs to see a therapist. Anorexia is no laughing matter, it can kill.
