Just me or is nothing but some link on the side of the page loading?

Yeah great job, school. This move will surely help to strengthen her already fragile self-esteem.

And it seems fixed now.

Those monsters! The poor girl has an illness.  Obviously, she can't eat because her lips are stuck in that duckbill/kissyface position!

Not that I think their move was effective in any way other than to expose their own ignorance, anorexia is so far off the deep end of crazy that I really doubt the girl's self-esteem will be shattered by it.  This is, at worst, like kicking a guy when he has the flu.  It might feel awful, but it's hardly a killshot.

i'm sure the comments here and on other sites will only help boost that esteem....

Girls getting pregnant in high school sure is contagious. Early in my junior year of high school a girl got pregnant, shortly after a couple of her friends also got knocked up and it just cascaded from there. By the time I finished my senior year at least a dozen girls had gotten pregnant. Looking back, maybe I should have used condoms more.

Kids are incredibly stupid and nobody will say it. We don't even try to do anything about. We let it crash and burn while we market from it.

I don't know how it would've made a difference.  You have to have sex for the condoms to matter.

Banned from 12k GBP a year private school for anorexia, despite undergoing expensive life saving treatment for your eating disorder?

Rich white girl problems.

Past pupils of Northampton High include Baroness Falkender, who was private secretary to Harold Wilson, and Baroness Manningham-Buller, a former director general of the security service MI5.

Anyone?

It is contagious though.

This girl is a whale and needs to add bulimia to her routine, cuz anorexia just isn't cutting it. And speaking of cutting it, self-harm might not be a bad idea either.

14 lbs.  So about 28 smirglins, or 98 smurfs.

We were at a restaurant last night when, I presume, an anorexic girl passed out while waiting for a table. Plop, right on the floor. A glass of wine 10 minutes later, she was good to go.

Seeing as the US is pretty much the last major nation on the planet to not use metric(Myanmar is holding out too I think), we really don't have room to complain about the UK's continued adherence to the 'stone' as a unit of weight measurement.

I'm not sure what this makes me, but I'm getting tired of perpetually having to "fix" someone else's problems. Basically, we're supposed to constantly walk on egg shells and not do, say, or think anything that might affect someone else's "self esteem". If a stranger can either tear you down or build you up based solely on a few choice comments (bad or good), then maybe the problem is you.
 
2014-03-08 10:03:21 AM
would make sense if she was one of those "pro-ana" nutjobs.  But if she had a problem and got better, it seems like she'd be a good influence on the other students, not a bad one.  Assuming she stays better, that is.

My grandfather was like that, except he wasn't anorexic, he was a raging alcoholic. He'd pass out at restaurants, and could only be revived by a tumbler full of bourbon.

Or have been neutered

The school denied she was banned, but said she should wait until she was well enough to attend school full time. While that also seems stupid, it's differently stupid than what the parents are claiming, and as long as they treat all sick children with equal heartlessness, her case isn't newsworthy.

Or in Murrican units, it's very much in the "dear gods, get that girl a sammich, and not one of those weird British ones which only has cucumbers in it".  (84 lbs, which is well in the "too damn skinny" category unless she's in fourth grade or something.)

The other kids may not have noticed the anorexia before, but they'll definitely notice her free vacation now.

They teach that to the girls? I wondered where they learnt it.

That's not how mental disorders work.

Honestly if that was my daughter and she was that close to graduating from a private school. I wouldn't be sending her back from the hospital back into the same social situation that assisted her in getting there.
 
2014-03-08 11:55:10 AM
So a school decides that they don't have the resources to deal with a students mental disorder and tells the mother to send her daughter to one that is better equipped to handle it. What is the problem with this? That is what the mother should be doing in the first place. Just because you took care of the physical problems that manifested from the girls mental disorder doesn't mean that she is mentally sound, and instead of trying to put her back into that school to keep up the appearance that she is normal, she should be trying to find some place where she could get some long term help.

Broken people seem to have the attitude that the rest of the world should put everything else on hold and attend to their particular problems. Victimology 101.

Other way around. Obviously, smirglens weigh less than smurfs. One stone = 2 gremlins, keep it simple stupid.

They have likened obesity to a communicable disease, so this makes sense in that paradyne.

Which is to say neither make any farking sense.
