    So my friend found out I had an ED today and she told me i needed help.She told me to ring up the doctors and i explained it wasnt so easy.then she had a go at me for 'not letting her help me' and stormed off.
    Anyone else get this response or this sort of response?People dont understand it?

    I think its very hard for anyone to understand unless we communicate to them. Eating disorders inspire fear and she sounds very scared of losing you, and she probably also feels helpless and like she doesn't know what she can do to help you (probably similar to how you felt about your friend, but showed it in a different way).

    Have you tried talking to her since? Maybe print out some info and share it with her and also communicate to her how it is for you, what she could do that helps you, etc.

    I imagine she feels upset because she cares about you and doesn't know how to help. It can be very frustrating for friends and family.
    'Scum's advice is good... give her some time to cool off and then try talking again. :hug:

    No, she probably doesn't, and that in itself instills anger because its confusing and scary. How about writing her a letter?
