my girlfriend for awhile now has been going through alot this year, and she used to have bulimia from 6-9th grade but told me she stopped. Now, i think she is starting again. We were at a party, and there were a few ppl who threw up because of alcohol, but she threw up, and told her friend that she just ate more than she wanted to. And now more recently, im noticing more and more that she goes to the bathroom after meals and turns the fan on and comes out chewing gum.
i need advice to go about talking to her about it and how to handle it.
some one pls reply i was just with her and i was sort of listening as she went to the bathroom, she was throwing up. im worried for her, she used to be so depressed and almost kiled her self. i dont want her going back to that
You seem like a great boyfriend. I would talk to her about it in private but NOT after she has come out of the bathroom, NOT during a meal, and NOT right before or after eating. Say something like, "how are you?" but in a very serious tone and looking directly in her eyes and let there be a long pause before and after she answers. If she just says "I'm fine" or something of that sort, tell her you want her to know she can tell you anything and that you know she's been under a lot of stress lately and that you want to be there for her. Verbally affirming this is always encouraging even if she already knows you are. ...
