I don't know if this is true for you, but when my adult child was at a low weight they said some terrible things, often close to irrational and always absolutely terrified. On a few occasions they resorted to violence particularly against my husband. I am happy to say that things are so much better now . I have asked my child how much they could remember of what was said and done in those dark days and they could remember very little. So if you are going through those horrible times please take strength from that - try not to hang onto frightened cruel and vicious words.
If you have been through this would you like to share your story and how you coped with it? It will help others - if you do not want to be identified you can anonymised by referring to your child in a genderless way as I have done.
