Never went back there. my mom seems like she just forgot after a week and yells at me all the time cause I binge and purge. I feel torn
Unless a therapist is trained to deal with eating disorders,this leaves both you and them at a disadvantage.
I suppose that she felt the information was deemed appropriate and not made to belittle you in any way,shape or form.
You may have felt useless at that point in time but know that you're not a useless individual;you have worth.
Please return to therapy and explain how the session made you feel.
Wrestling with these unresolved issues can actually make your bulimia worse.
Your mother needs to be educated about bulimia because she is only making a bad situation worse.
Would she be willing to read eating disorder literature?........
Back to your therapist.....
You could try bringing pamphlets to your session that you've read and ask her opinion on it.
Don't be so quick to give up on yourself.........
because you're worth fighting for.
