Is mum makin excuses for her ? - October 13th 2013, 03:44 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

my sister has annorexia. and has done for like quite a long like maybe 3 or more years now, and basically she will not go near or even touch certain foods. one food in particular. The thing is though this food the one food in particular she has never liked , abit like me and fish, i have a fear of fish mum i had conversation with mum about dinner and said 'oh we should have this as shes not here and it would be nice to have' and mum said maybe and then we got onto the subject of fish.. and i said if she is allowed to avoid that certain food i should not be forced to sit here when u all eat fish mum turned round and said do you have an eating disorder i told mum no but fish people eating fish etc causes me big anxiety and such like and mum simply said well then.

i just feel like mum is making an excuse, i get she doesn't want to be near that food, but what she feels with that certain food is probably partly how i feel about fish. my eating is disordered to an extent but i wouldn't actually go as far as saying i have an eating disorder but i have phases of starvation and binging.

Hi there, that sounds really hard on you. From what you've said it does sound like your mum is making excuses for your sister, but she might not realize she is doing it. Have you thought about sitting down with her and telling her how your feeling? If you felt you couldn't actually tell her you could either write a letter and leave it somewhere she'll find it, or hand it to her and stay whilst she reads it, or you could even ask for a written response. Hope this helps, I'm always here if you want to talk
