I actually find this really sad. As someone who has suffers from, and in many ways still struggles with, an eating disorder, I can personally tell you that they are hell. They are completely debilitating, mentally and physically. People want to help you, but don't know how. And you resent them for it. You resent them so much. It isn't just about "getting that bitch to eat." Food isn't the only problem. They're a mental disorder and need to be treated as such. Nobody thinks depression can be cured with a shopping trip, or that dissociative identity disorder can be fixed with a name tag, so I've always been confused as to why so many people think a sandwich or an ice cream can fix an eating disorder.
I don't know if you'll actually ever read this, but on the offshot that you do....
Stay strong. Eating disorders are an illness (despite what others may think). You did the right thing by going to your mom for support. I'm sorry she didn't support you. I went through the struggles of an eating disorder, too. I struggled with it for 2 years before finally seeking help. Now, 4 years later, I am finally to the point where I am moving on and living life without the eating disorder.
Like I said, I don't know if you'll even see this, but if you do.....I saw that you are from Minnesota too. Park Nicolette has an amazing eating disorders treatment center called Melrose Institute. I strongly suggest that you give them a call. I had tried so many things and they were finally able to help me get better and move past my eating disorder. Stay strong, life will get better and you will beat your eating disorder.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
