I know, it sounds a bit insane, but I just can't get it out of my head. I read an article, in fact several articles, a few weeks ago about bulimia, that suggested that bulimia was a psychological problem - which I know is not exactly the case - , but the part that stuck in my mind is about typical parents whose daughters(?!) are likely to become bulimic. So it said these girls usually have an emotionally distant father and an (over-)controlling mother. As you might have guessed, it applies for me, that's why it is bugging me. Now, I know that many people with parents like these do not become bulimics, and that probably a lot of bulimics come from families very different from the described above, but I am just curious to know whether some or any of you have a somewhat similar background?
