I’m new here, and am struggling with keeping my food down. My mom had the same condition for years but doesn’t really seem to care that I can’t keep my food down on my own, I purge every time I eat, when I told her her reply was “well stop. Duh” I told her I try but it’s hard and she replied with “it’s easy” but it’s really hard for me. I have a wonderful fiancé who is trying to help but I’m not sure I can do it with his support alone, and no counselor I’ve been to has helped they kept saying I need to focus on other things first but I don’t want my baby seeing her mommy like this anymore
