  1. Toddler I posted the other night about my sil passing out and having to go to the hospital. My brother could not revive her, he thought she was dying. Even when the medics got there she...(more) 1 hr 18 min ago (8 replies)
    would not come to. She was admitted into hospital and had a battery of tests. The only thing they found was that her potassium was really low. They have been dealing w/my nephew who is a drug addict and I think it just got to her. But the other issues is I have always believed my sil was anorexic. She never eats. I'm not sure if she is bulimic but I can tell you that you will never see her eat. She is home from the hospital and my brother said that part of the problem is that she has not eaten since last week. I feel this issue is a huge pink elephant in the room that you dare not speak of. I am shocked that he actually said that. It's been brought up over the years but fluffed off. Why does someone go down this road? What is anorexia about... feeling in control of something?

      timer again a while later. Gradually make the times longer. Eventually you will say go play and he will. Also you can use TV to babysit him sometimes, but if done too often it makes this problem worse.
