My wife has been having bulimia/anorexia problems on and off for years. This is the first I've heard about it since we were married 6 years ago. After giving birth to 2 children in 2 years, she put on weight. This combined with a low thyroid problem sent her over the edge. She now tells me she's back at it and has been for months. She will tell me she's "going to go throw up" and waits to see what I might say. I will say "don't" or something else stupid but I really have no idea how to deal with this. I've talked to my doctor, her doctor and a help line all of which have told me she will need to walk in under her own steam to get help. She will not do this so I'm asking if anyone has any suggestions. Even just comforting words I can tell her that won't give her the wrong idea. The help line siad just be there for her. I have been but no matter whaty I say or do it's wrong. I don't want to make her situation any worse just better. Right now I'm keeping as quiet as possible because I don't want to say the wrong things anymore.
