    Adult Bulimic Child with Lifelong Depression
    CKoeh posted:
    My 32 year old daughter has returned to live with us after 10 years separation. Along with lifelong depression, she is bulimic and not willing at this point in her life to have any treatment, medical or psychological. She has been through many medical crises, and fears what might happen in the future as her body finally breaks down. I have told her that I love her and will support her path to wellness. She says she just does not want to try any more. She is unable to hold a job or even take courses. She does tend a deck garden and care for my dog if I have to be away. I am grateful to at least have her in my home, with a roof over her head. She has admitted she will take an overdose of pills if the pain gets unbearable (and would slit her wrists if I hospitalized her).

    Just reaching out....

    I am sorry to hear this about your daughter. It sounds like she has multiple issues going on. Please don't take this as a joke but I think you should reach out to Dr. Phil. He has alot of connections and has helped people who are having a hard time with several issues and can't sort them out. This is also a place you could get the best help ever. I suffer from depression myself so I know what she is going through. I hope you find help for her.
