Does anybhody else have a family history of eating disorders?
My mum definitely had an issue of bing eating and restricting and some fixations with her body...my older sister has had issues with bulimia and one of my big sadnesses is that I can't talk to her about my problems as I know she shuts down completely with any emotional stuff (we had a difficult time growing up and she will not talk about the past at all).
My brother is a lot younger and I couldn't bera to burden him with this...so cna't share any of this with people who remeber my mum.
I feel so much shame and this 'hidden' family thing makes it worse...I feel like bulimia is a shameful, sinful thing, bizarrely worse than going and getting drunk or even hitting somebody, I'd rather admit to those things. Madness rationally!!!
