I am the mother of 4 daughters and 1 son. My oldest daughter is 12 and skinny. I am bulimic and have struggled with anorexia in the past. I now binge and purge. I believe that I have sucessfully hidden my ED from my daughters, but don't really know that for sure. I am worried that they to will go down this road--my 12 year old already talks about her weight and as I said she is skinny! Does anyone else have daughters--how do you handle this --how can I protect my girls?? I am so focused on food and guilt and being thin, but I don't want my daughters to be the same way.
