My parents are dating
Like many people with anorexia, I am extremely perfectionistic and try to please those around me.
In high school and through the end of my junior year of college, I achieved high grades, rarely drank alcohol, and spoke to my mother daily.

They don’t see your sweetheart or spouse for the wonderful person he or she is.
Soon, they began to threaten me that I needed to choose between them and my boyfriend.
