It means she should be seen within 4 weeks and will get a further in depth assessment. There are four tiers... four is when they're thinking of hospital (from what I understand from google!) however the lady we saw today said they're running behind and it'll be 2-3 months.

I've been fine today but now I feel totally drained. Had an argument with my husband about something stupid - my fish tank filter broke and he didn't want to buy a new one, saying the other one is sufficient (it isn't). Luckily I've managed to fix it.

Anyway I think I'm just filled with worry for my little girl. She said on a scale of 1-10 her mood was 3. Which makes me so upset and worried

oh Mungojerry, 
Big hugs! 

2-3 months before you get help?

Sorry not sure I understand.

Yep 2-3 months...

Not having a good morning today. She's got gymnastics (which she usually loves) and she won't get out of bed and hasn't had breakfast yet.... the lady at camhs said to keep doing her routine because it's good for her mood to get out and about (not staying in bed all day).

My d is saying everyone is thinner than her/better than her and she doesn't want to go :-(

That is ED talk. Try to not engage in it. It will fade away slowly after WR.
Try to distract her if possible. Maybe she can go on a short walk with you to get her out of bed?

Gentle movement and connection when possible. I am planning to relegate my sprinter to walking on the treadmill. She will be ‘spewing’ (to coin a popular Aussie term for anger!) hope that you get to be seen closer to 2 than 3 months! Varies from state to state here.

Sorry for the long wait! I agree getting her out of the house for a bit is good. We had to stop all physical activity for D to heal. Not sure how physically active your D is, it is just a thought. 
Yup the part about comparing herself to others is typical ED. Distraction can be helpful. Help her to get her thoughts onto something more positive can help.
