its Been a rough day today.
We had many good days where she ate some challenge foods with not too much resistance. But two days ago I served her taquitos and she freaked out and I never could get her to eat them. Then last night at 3 am she woke up and binged big time. So of course she had an upset stomach. She didn’t eat her snacks or lunch. Then tonight I tried to get her to eat some rice and two hours and many dumped plates in, I gave up. So she started jogging in place and crying that she’s fat. Today has been a rough day. I know there will be days like this and I try to remain optimistic but still it’s hard.

cm72,
I know it was a hard day and I am sorry for that. Please remember this episode is just that an episode and does not erase all the progress you have made and you have made a lot of progress! You have done so well, and this too will pass. 

This is just another "lesson"in the school called ED. I wish someone taught us  all this and not  learning by "trial by fire". I swear, these lessons are so hard and you are not alone. You will get back on track and you are strong and we are here to support you. 

I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Oh dang, so sorry for all the difficulty.  If we had a little more information, perhaps we could help brainstorm some ideas for next time.  What happened when she refused the taquitos?  Did you require a replacement beverage?  If so, did she drink it?

What happened when she didn't eat her snacks or lunch?  Was she at home in bed, resting?

I'm a little unclear if she ate anything at all today since 3 am?

I really wish I could help, but I'm confused about the present situation.  Please remember that we're with you in spirit. xx

Yes we all had days like those. Just reset and present all her meals and snacks as per usual. Hope today will be better.

Sending you lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
