I have a friend that I have known since highschool. We were good friends until about two years ago, and we''ve sortof drifted simply due to different schedules, and meeting new people and what not but we are still in touch a lot and get together now and again. She''s always been a very small girl naturally. She''s been through two very rough relationships, and has always had lower self esteem. Here recently she has lost a lot of weight, to the point that she looks unhealthy in all her recent photos, too thin, and pale and worn out. She has been suffering from nose bleeds a lot recently as well. She simply looks malnourished. She broke up with a boyfriend recently, and keeps telling me she is just stressed but I feel like there is more to it. She has been partying a lot, and drinking a lot. I''m worried that she might be suffering, and even falling into an eating disorder. Like I said, she has always had low self esteem and loves when people tell her she is thin. I''m afraid she''s become fixated on this. I feel like I need to say something, as I am very worried for her at this point, but I don''t know how she would react, or if she would listen. I have other friends of ours who agree, and we''re almost considering taking her to lunch and talking to her about it, I just don''t know if it will anger her. Has anyone ever gone through this?
