My parents are too busy
they never have time.
My mother always has an excuse for anything
that is connected with learning about the eating disorder.
My mother said she finds
the parents meeting very painful-
did she think about the pain I
have to put up with every day?
My parents put so much pressure on me to recover
but they refused to be part of it. ...
My mother's depressed mood swings made me very anxious.
My father told my mother
to lose some weight.
When my mother is on the phone to her friends
she only talks about food and her weight.
I feel responsible for my brother's exams.
I feel very sorry for my mother,
she smiles only when she is drinking
and she does not even realise that I know it.
How can I recover when my father
does not miss one day in the gym.
I am not supposed to weigh myself
but the whole family does it on a
regular basis and talks about it.
My family never sits down at the dinner
table they prefer to watch television
instead of talking to me.
My father always works I hardly see him;
I think he thinks the business is more important than me.
My mother never says anything positive,
even if l have a good time she asks
How can I give up drugs when
father is popping his pills - sedatives
inside him every day like Smarties,
because he can't handle the condition?
Mother said after she lost me through
the eating disorder her best friend is Prozac. ...
my parents want me to do my best
but they did never go to any parents meetings.
My mother always reminds me that
she cannot live until I recover -
that is the last pressure I need.
My partner often reminds me
that he does not like the way I look.
My husband blames the condition for everything.
I think he forgot I am person as well.
My parents said that they would only
pay for therapy when they see results
in my eating.
If I hear once more that they lost
the girl they had before, I will scream.
It makes me so sad that they cannot
see the real person.
I am all the time reminded that I am not the
girl I used to be - who is living in the past,
my parents or me?
A doctor told me , that the electric
will bring me back on the right track ,
my parents won't have to worry any more
