My friend is suffering from anorexia nervosa. She is 18 years old. A few months back, she starved for almost two months. From there, it all started. Now she has a fear of food. After eating, she feels guilty. She wants to quit eating. Her mood fluctuates, and she feels anxious. She feels better without eating, so she restricts herself. If anyone says you are skinny, she does not feel anything. How can she recover mentally? Please explain to me the process for mental recovery.
I read your query and understand your concern. Anorexia nervosa is a type of eating disorder. In this, the affected person has an extreme fear of weight gain. Anorexia nervosa people usually suffer from depression. As per your description, your friend might be suffering from anorexia nervosa though we need a detailed assessment. I would recommend you ask her for psychiatric consultation. If there is only anorexia nervosa and no secondary symptoms, then the mode of treatment would be mainly psychotherapy, that is, counseling.
