I told my family towards the beginning of my recovery although now, they act like nothing had ever happened, even though I am still very much struggling.
But now I'm starting to get worried about my little (14-year-old) sister. I feel like she may be starting to restrict her food intake- not tremendously, but enough for me to notice.
She hasn't lost weight (at least that I can tell. She still wears the same clothes as before, and they seem to fit her the same), and she's already a perfect size, but she's a dancer, so I'm scared that she thinks she needs to be as small as possible to be better. She went on a little "diet" a month ago, trying to eat less sugar, but she said it was just because she wanted to be healthier for dance. She kind of gave it up after a couple of weeks, but she has begun to eat a little less than she used to. I don't know how to explain it, but she seems to be acting different around meals and snacks.
I'm terrified, because eating just a little less than normal was how my ed started, and before I knew it, it spiraled out of control. I'm worried that she's copying what I did when I was pretty sick.
Is it possible that I'm just being paranoid? Or could she be mimicking me because of how much weight I lost?
What do I do?
