How many times I have to say it so that you’ll believe me?
Henry was shaking his head so vehemently that it appeared like a blur. Jennifer tried to calm him down by taking away the plate of food she was offering to him. His constant denial of any nourishment was beginning to alarm his sister. After the passing away of their parents, she felt responsible for her younger brother.
She didn’t want to admit it to herself, but it was time she sought help for him. She thought that only young girls suffered from anorexia, but it seemed that teenage boys did too.
She went away to her room to look up the helpline number provided by her university. She hoped that with proper counseling they can help him out of this and the depression that had taken hold of him when their parents had died.
