Hello. I hope someone can help me. My daughter has been restrictive eating for a few months and lost a lot of weight. She's being seen by CAHMS but it's taken a long time and we're still only in the assessment stage. She's now suddenly started binge eating and gets so upset afterwards. I just have no experience of this, and I don't know how to support or comfort her after a binge, or how to stop her binging. She binged last night, I was up with her all night afterwards trying to console her. Now she's in town shopping and had just rung me saying she's been binging in town and is in tears and needs picking up. How do I help her. I don't know what to say to her to make it any better. She thinks she's fat, that the binge will have made her fat etc, but she's currently under weight. I hope someone can help me today. I'm so exhausted from no sleep last night, and I'm scared I'm just going to lose my temper with her. I've got no support, it's just dd and me at home.
Thanks in advance for any advise.
