I told my boyfriend about my bulimia a few months ago, more out of necessity than because I had planned to do so (he caught me in a sticky situation...). After telling him though I was relieved that he knew, and I hoped that this might finally be a chance for someone to get through to me. But then after this first emotional confrontation we didn't talk about it again for another couple of months. When the topic did eventually come up again, however, I was terribly uncomfortable talking about it and at his slightest ignorance on the matter I accused him of not caring enough about me to have learned about the disorder. Then more recently when he brought the topic up again, this time with more knowledge on the subject, I found his approach insensitive and then got all defensive towards the remarks he made concerning the disorder, and we ended up arguing and not talking to each other for the rest of the night. It just seems that every time he tries to reach out to me I put up a wall, and I fight him off with one reason or another, even though all I really want is a helping hand...I don't understand why I react like this, and I wish I wouldn't...How can I let him in?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
