My daughter is an admitted bulimic. She exhibits 99% of the examples discussed here. One thing I have not seen is why she would have bruises around her mouth.

Shaye Says

Hi Janis,

Sometimes people who suffer from bulimia have bruises around their mouth from the sheer force of putting their hand down their mouth to induce purging.

I am sorry your daughter (and yourself as a parent of somebody with an ED) is going through this. Keep faith that recovery is possible - and keep looking for your answers.
