I'm sorry you have to go through this I'm a recovered bulimic and I still feel awful for how I treated my mother when I was sick. First off understand she is sick and you can't make her better no matter how hard you try or how much you love her only she can choose to get better. I'd suggest you get counseling to help deal with your feelings and behaviors around her issues. A professional can help guide you in the best way to help yourself and your daughter. It's not going to be easy and it might take a very long time but your daughter needs you even if she is doing everything she can to prove she doesn't so don't give up trying to talk to her it's a matter of life and death don't forget that.
