I have a wonderful husband, and we will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary this month. He knew about my ED history when we started dating, but I was in "recovery" so it didn't seem to matter. Over the years, it has turned out to be a huge part of our marriage and definately not a good part. We have grown further and further apart physically and emotionally. He has tried to understand, but he doesn't get it. Now he just angry and wants me to "get over it." I know he loves me and I love him, but I feel so lonely. He still wants to be with me, but when you dislike your image in the mirror so much, how can you accept that others don't see what you do? How do others deal with the conflict that arises because of the ED in relationships?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
