Today I went out for lunch with a couple of friends. One is a recovering anorexic, and the sweetest thing. I've seen her socially 3 times now, not including the other times when she's cancelled at the last moment.
The first time was between meals and we didn't eat. The second time she felt poorly and ate only a banana all day. Today she didn't eat lunch with us, saying she was on a detox diet.
I want to believe her. She was looking good - healthier than last time I saw her - and was giving us all the right words about loving herself and feeling positive. But at what stage should a friend of a recovering anorexic start to be worried about unusual eating habits? I don't want to be the friend who let her down. Tough one, huh?
