I am so deeply moved by a comment just received. It was on an older post, but where a very frightened and confused young person said her mother "can't know" about her eating disorder. I responded to her, but THIS response is so beautiful and deserves a post of its own:
"tell your mom, she loves you and she doesn't want you to hurt. I wish I understood this when I was your age and got help, now that I have children of my own I understand that there is nothing that would make me stop loving them. Your mom will do anything to help you, don't keep it a secret tell someone all you have to do is reach out. & I think you just did."
She's right. She's exactly right. Tell your mom.
