maybe your doctor would do a house call

Just wanted to add that you should talk with your doctor about emergency help for your daughter even if she says she doesn't want to go to the doctor. Hopefully there are professionals who can come to your home to talk to your daughter and check out her health. Her blood pressure must be sky high as it is right now.

I think you need to talk to your doctor NOW about getting some emergency help for your daughter. Is she still covered by your health plan? It sounds like she's addicted to food, like other people are addicted to drugs or alcohol, and if it's at the point where she can no longer move, you must get help for her immediately. Her future is at stake. Good luck.
