My DD (15) had been officially diagnosed with an eating disorder by CAMHS and has recently started seeing them on a weekly basis. She had a binge on Sunday (yesterday) and felt so awful today that she wouldn't go to school. She also seems depressed and anxious, and I'm wondering if it would be better to keep her off school for a while until she is better. She has agreed she would do whatever work they send her. The stress of school work - early GCSEs, endless mock exams was a major trigger for her disorder, and the thought of facing that pressure every day is making her ever more distressed. What would you do?

Sorry to hear this OP. I'd keep her off school.

Hi I am 16 and know some people who have a eating disorder and the best thing to do is do homeschooling as she will find it much more relaxed
