    i didn't think that would happen that fast and i'm not going to get into any lenthy discussions, but she is my major cause for concern-she has not ate anything for 10 days--says it is for religious reasons that she will not discuss with me

      Ten days.  Holy smoke.  I don't know of any religion that goes that long.  I don't blame you for being worried.  Is there someone else she confides in that you can talk to?  Or try to approach her with the health issues and leave the religious part alone?  Try to reach her somehow, this doesn't sound healthy at all to me... Good luck, blessing you both and hope you find a way.

    Buddhism?
    Some sects of Christianity? (I can't think of any specifically but I sure some do around this time of the year)

    not confiding in anyone--seems to not care about the health issues--i did promise her i would stay off hub pages after the last episode , but i was hoping to reach out to her somehow. she really has some severe issues

    NA's fast but only 4 days n that's it hmm guided by someone of experience in such matters too. Ten days is BS and she will have health issues. I would suggest calling a ambulance soon and they may put her in psychiatric care for observation.

    native americans hmm NA's ..sorry, tongue lol..fasting is done for spiritual reasons but only 4 days with help from one with experience. Never heard of any 10 day fast hmm n should be of great concern.

    That she says it's for "religious reasons" she refuses to discuss, and that she's gone for 10 days without any food raises a million red flags. No religion calls for fasting that long.

    Even the Coptic Orthodox Church, which practices the most fasting of any religious group, allows some food to be taken at certain times of day depending on the individual's health and spiritual needs.

    today is 21 days since the fast / food strike began. she has lost at least 40 lb. and looks like a walking skeleton. still no help from the mental health people. they still say as long as she can walk and make decisions , they can do nothing. I'm not religous , but a few words may help.-And yes , i am talking about smokenchic
