Answer: It sounds like not only are you worried about yourself but your friend's health as well. I am so sorry your friend has to repeat her grade. But her health is important and she needs to get better.
As far as yourself goes, have you tried counseling, or talking to your doctor in confidence?
If that still does not work I suggest finding some type of online support groups that work with the eating disordered. But please beware there are groups out there that focus on glorifying the illness, and giving out dangerous tips and tricks. Please steer very clear of such sites, and groups. Here are some links that may help you out:
www.something-fishy.org - Includes a forum where there are others like you.
http://www.edreferral.com - For recovery information and ed information
