I have a feeling that my daughter 15 is bulimic. I have seen some signs over the past few years and a couple of years ago when she was 13 I called her out on it and she got so angry, defensive and outraged that it ended up not being a good scene at all.
Things started to dwindle a little bit but now I am seeing signs again. For example, she will go to the bathroom for 20 minutes at a time shortly after dinner but there will be no smell coming from the bathroom as if she was in there doing something else. She has claimed to feel "pukey" or sick a lot this school year since starting high school and is missing a lot of school, it's becoming like once every week it seems.
Today she texts me and asks me only an hour after school started to go pick her up because she is feeling "pukey and anxious." I texted her back saying that she really needs to start taking her vitamins daily going forward because she has been sick a lot. She responded "I think I need to completely change my diet, I want to feel healthy."
Last night when she was in the bathroom and I was close by, I could have swore I heard her throwing up. I am getting very concerned.
Her and I are heading out of town for a concert this weekend just the two of us and I was thinking maybe I should bring something up, but I'm not sure how to go about it because she gets very defensive. And, there is a possibility I could be wrong, but I'm not sure I want to take the chance of not doing anything then end up being right and something happening to her.
Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your input.
