Bulimia problem in the family== I need some ADVICE (Post# 1)
I don't know who to turn or what to do. Worst case senario - my mother has bulimia. It all started when she was gaining alot of weight and my dad had pushed her into 'losing weight' so much that she's always losing weight by vomiting. The thing is that i'm only 19 -- and my mom thinks that no one in the family suspects anything of her doing. when any of us tell her about it she always shrugs it off like its nothing. I know this is a real problem, but as a daughter, she doesn't want to listen to me. When my older sister tried to address my mom about it....she was like 'okay okay I'll stop, I know it's wrong." But lately I can tell that my mom is still routinely vomiting up the food; and she eats very little everyday.
How can we get it out of her head that this can affect her? Please help....I don't know where to turn!
What should I do as a daughter?
