Default eating disorder friend need a help

i got a friend with bipolar disorder type 2, and bulimia eating disorder.
i myself got anxiety and panic disorder.

she currently purging and abuse laxative, and cried everyday, i cant stand looking at her like that anymore.

1) she asked me to buy laxative for her, and flip out, angry at me when i refuse, am did i right thing? i was speechless when she angry, but actually, what should i say??
2) she ask me to buy some food a pizza to be precise, because she was hungry, what should i say, what type of food good for her? should i state the reason why i bought this and that?

Welcome to Psych Central, dewdew. I don't think I have much in the way of advice for you with regard to your concerns. However I noticed no one had replied to your post. So I thought I would. Based on what you wrote it sounds as though you're having difficulty knowing how to deal with your friend's anger. So here are links to 3 articles, from Psych Central's archives, that offer tips for dealing with other people's anger:

How to Switch Off an Angry Person

How to Defuse Anger in Ourselves & Others

How to Respond to Angry People | Anger Management

You also mentioned your friend has bulimia & it sounds as though you're having difficulty knowing when & how to help. So here are links to 3 articles that talk about being of help to someone who has an eating disorder plus 1 that talks about situations where a person has both bipolar disorder & bulimia:

Helping A Friend With Body Image Or Eating Issues

Eating Disorders Awareness Week: Helping Someone Who Is Struggling

I hope you find PC to be of benefit.
