Question "Spillin-the-beans" - December 9th 2012, 07:40 PM

My eating problems are back, this time with a vengeance...somehow last time i managed to escape mum knowing about me going into hospital because i wasn't living with her...this time i am now back with her and my eating is controlling everything i do or think about.
I do'nt want it to get bad again but the only way to sort it out is if my mum knows..im not good about talking about myself and im really nervous about talking to her. Any tips..?

It's hard to talk about your weaknesses especially around parents. I sent my dad a facebook message and then he brought it up. I find that to be way easier than trying to just awkwardly bring it up.

You know what? I'm happy you posted this. Why? Not because I'm glad you're struggling again- hell no.

The reason I'm glad you posted this is because this is the part of you that wants to get better posting this. Sometimes it's difficult to tell apart the piece of us that wants to get better, and the part that wants us to get worse. Reaching out to other people forces the part of us that does want recovery to emerge, and that's the part I'm seeing now.

Okay, mini ramble over Talking to your mum. You already know how important it is you talk to her, don't you? You know that, I'm not gonna go over the importance of support, because you know all of this. You truly do. So I'll just try and answer your question, shall I? ;D

- Write a letter. I've done this one many a time. It's good when you have a lot to say, and are terrified of saying it. You can write the note, then go out, or hide for a couple of hours, until your mum has read it, and decides to bring it up. This way, your mum has time to calm down, and you don't need to confront her. You won't forget what you're supposed to say, or stumble over words. If you're someone who struggles to articulate their feelings on paper however, this might not be the best option.

*Hang on, my laptop battery is running out, I'll be back to complete this later, lovely! <3

Take as long as you need.
