Question to parents

I just told my mother today that I am bulimic.

You are right - there is a liberating feeling from telling people :).

But my mom keeps saying its the proportion that cause weight gain and you've always eaten too much. Are there any magic words I can say to get her to realize it's not that simple and there are other reasons for binging? I can't seem to get the point across that there were family stress markers during the times I remember having severe binge cycles.

Thank you for your help. I'm so glad I found this page!
