My friend has this psychological problem and I've really been trying to help deal with it. However, I'm seriously stumped.Lets call my friend Andy.
Andy had two amazing friends, he was really happy since they were the best friends he could have. However, on his birthday, he ignored his friends and for two days afterwards, he ignored them as well. When he finally met up with them, his friends asked what happened and he said:
The friendship broke and they completely ignored each other from then on.
In school, they completely ignore each other and are nearly on the point of hating each other.
My friend slowly developed a mental issue. He constantly thinks hes over weight, that he always hated his friends. He told me he wants friends, but he claims he knows he won't get any unless he becomes anorexic. Only then, would he get some friends who are only his friends out of sympathy. I've tried talking to him and told him it is his thoughts that are causing him to become worst. When he is home alone, he stuffs himself with lots of food (he's a pretty big eater), and then he goes to the bathroom and throws it all up, sometimes to the point where hes bleeding. His friends are rather forgiving people, is there anything I could say to them to my friend to help this case?
Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated. Really looking out for my friend here, wish there was something I could do to help.
