I followed Laura Collins' kind steer and went to read the messageboard at www.aroundthedinnertable.org.
This thread, about a ten year old girl and her desperate mother, is movingly heartbreaking :-(
My impression so far is that the UK system of health is better than that clearly prevailing in Australia- I may be lucky living nearby, but Waif had a referral straight through to the Maudsley and she is way off being as ill as poor Elleelephant's daughter.
I only wish I had any advice but am not yet at that stage as I know too little about approaches to ED. I am hoping to learn much more at the Maudsley, and am glad that I seem to have a headstart on the ED and hope to nip it in the bud. It must be terrifying to have a too too thin child simply refusing to eat.
