How can a boyfriend help his girlfriend with this affliction? Without everything he says or does pissing her off. Right now boyfriend isn't talking to girlfriend until she feels like talking to him. Boyfriend loves girlfriend and doesn't want her to die, which is what she is doing. Slowly but surely. Boyfriend is very sad. I ask this for a friend, of course. A (nother) friend of mine said Bulimia never really goes away and there are usually relapses - is that right? She has it too so I guess she knows. Boyfriend just wants his baby to be well again. Thanks...if you can help. PS could someone move this to Etcetera, Etcetera? I think its more apt there and to be honest that section gets the most views. I'm desperate for advice.
