I am very pleased to introduce you all to a new blog that I hope will be very enlightening for us and a place of support and sharing for our families: My Sister Has Bulimia.
The author, a woman I am looking forward to getting to know much better, writes:
Part of the reason I started this blog was to just get my emotions out. I think it can pretty easy to throw them back aggressively and hurtfully when you're being pelleted with them. That's what I used to do earlier on with my sister's e.d, and obviously it got us no where. I really just want to provide a "place" where family members (especially siblings) can go and discuss, empathize, provide support for each other and know that they're not alone. I want the readers to know that the feelings of frustration, helplessness and confusion are valid but that it doesn't have to be a negative experience or process. In fact, in my experience, it's taught me about myself, and I've become increasingly aware of my actions, my words and my general philosophy of life.
I'm actually really looking forward to reading her perspective. I hope she writes a lot!
