She lives in a separate city and is in the medical field. We live in a smaller town and we do not have any type of help for anorexia. We would be willing to travel to get her any kind of assistance but everywhere I have contacted, has instructed me that there is nothing I can do because she is over the age of 18. She thinks she does not have a problem. She was hospitalized last year for a blocked bowel and I thought for sure the hospital would keep her because of her obvious anorexic condition, but because she is in the medical profession and I am not, she skirted her way around any questions they asked and they released her after 3 days. Where do my husband and I go for help for her? This has even changed her personality from a caring loving person to being self obssessed with exercise (at least 4-5hours per day), no calories, & several days she does gym time instead of eating anything. I feel reasonably sure she does not weigh more than 70 lbs and is 5'4". Where do we go from here?
