I have a friend(no really) that has been dealing with an eating disorder, as well as compulsive exercise issue. I have tried suggesting therapy, she said it was unsuccessful. I was wondering if someone had any suggestions on an upcoming intervention or if there could be an open thread on advice how to go about the intervention and how to get resources she desperately needs. She admits the problem but can't stop. She was just married and her husband doesn't seem to care as long as he has a skinny pretty housewife. I'm worried she will shut us out and use him as a support system. That would be the worst possible outcome for her health.This must work as she is in dire need of help and I want to help but not be a dick. Please, please help me save my friend from herself! Any help or resources would be greatly appreciated.
