This is very important for me, so if you can, reblog this so that I can find an answer:
A person who was a sister to me in the very sense of the word begin to disappear two years ago and a half. After a good year of almost never hearing of her and trying to contact her, we had a fight. I was seriously pissed because she had used the thing that hurt me the most to attack me, so I didn’t even ask for her for a while. But she sent me “happy birthday” on mine and I on hers and in the end, like it always happens for me, we made it up and it was all all right, except that she was still disappearing a lot. I decided not to push her, I just told her I love her anyway and I understood her need for space.
Yesterday she finally sent me an email: she told me she started being depressed after the fight with me and all the others of the group (for the same reason) and that she had an eating disorder. She’s seeing a therapist who gave her antidepressives, but she’s not taking them because they give her nausea. Her boyfriend was supportive but she said the food is interesting her less and less and the boyfriend is getting tired of it and starting to get mad at her. She’s losing her will of live and she’s feeling really lonely.
Now, what can I do for her, in your experience? What should I never say? Is there any way I can convince her to take medications that she needs at least to find her strength again? Can I give her examples of my aunt who suffers of a very bad depression and didn’t want to take medicines either? Is there something like a book or else that can show her that what she has is something that it’s not her fault, what are the steps to feel better and that what she has depends on her brain too and it’s something she shouldn’t be ashamed of asking help for? I already told her that I’m completely on board with helping her, that I love her and that I know it’s not her fault and I won’t leave her alone, and I really wish I could go visit her everyday but my fucking IBS keeps me home unless I take a lot of pills and therefore I can’t do it very often, I told her that it’s a big step that she asked me for help and that lots of people was asking for her because we all care and it was a good sign from the whole world that she found the strength to confess her problem now that everyone was already pushing me to look for her. I told her that if she wants to I’ll tell the other three persons that are/were our sisters what is going on so that we can be here for her…
And I really don’t know what else to do or how to move. So please, if you can help her, and me helping her, let me know. And if you can reblog, do it so that she can find help. I usually don’t ask people to reblog anything like this but I’m going to try everything I can here.
