Hi. I am so glad you posted! As a mom myself, I would want to support my child who is struggling with such big concerns. The sooner she knows what is really going on with you, the easier and quicker she can address your struggles. You and she could visit the bella vita website to educate about eating concerns and treatment options. Telling your mom the truth is the best thing you could do. If for some reason she has difficulty understanding, tell your school counselor. Best, Patricia Pitts, PhD The Bella Vita Los Angeles, CA
