My daughter has discharged herself from the unit , she also doesn’t like being weighed at the doctors and so she has asked me to record the weight to tell the doctor. I have done 3 weeks of this and it is so stressful, she is very anxious before she steps on the scales and is very upset if she has gain any weight. I dread it, have you had to do this if so do you have any tips?

fingers crossed

Eventually I managed to remove the scales form her room, it took time but she has been much happier. I know that that is a massive undertaking for an ED sufferer, I know of someone else who actually dismantled her scales so that she wasn't tempted and apparently she has never worked out how to get them back together. Hope your daughter is doing well
