Re: Recovering Anorexic Girlfriend
It is true that an ED can lay dormant and then resurface but remember there are always exceptions to the rule.
Your refusal to let this disorder get in between the two of you is admirable but regretfully is inevitable.
Her desire for control is a coping mechanism that most definitely will test the boundaries of any meaningful relationship.
Emotions and eating disorders go hand in hand and the more intense the feelings,without preventative measures set in place,the greater the likelihood of a recurrance of symptoms.
Is she seeing a therapist about her ED tendencies?
I hope that your answer is yes because this is something that cannot be remedied with loving support alone.
The fact that she showed a causal relationship between relationships and relapse mode is cause for concern.
Try asking her what her intentions going forward are,with respect to her ED but in a kind and compassionate way.
When in doubt, post it out.
