My Sister Has Bulimia

If you have a family member with an eating disorder, you’ll want to check out this new blog: My Sister Has Bulimia.

The author, a woman I am looking forward to getting to know much better, writes:

“Part of the reason I started this blog was to just get my emotions out. I think it can pretty easy to throw them back aggressively and hurtfully when you’re being pelleted with them. That’s what I used to do earlier on with my sister’s e.d, and obviously it got us no where. I really just want to provide a “place” where family members (especially siblings) can go and discuss, empathize, provide support for each other and know that they’re not alone.

I want the readers to know that the feelings of frustration, helplessness and confusion are valid but that it doesn’t have to be a negative experience or process. In fact, in my experience, it’s taught me about myself, and I’ve become increasingly aware of my actions, my words and my general philosophy of life.”
