You're sounding more philosophical and realistic about matters, a good comnination. IF life seems a smooth experience, it generally means we're overlooking something. And of course, you're right, carrying about a burden of self-hatred, is like training to be a long-distance runner, while carrying a large iron anchor.
Good idea of yours to see a shrink. And, as you've realized, mom's who are actually worried and concerned, don't have a wide range of ways in which to express that. And now you've admitted to being less than perfect ( join the club !) and to the bulimia, you've made the most critically important first steps on the path to setting yourself free from the problems you've been burdened by. I hope you find your shrink to be an able guide along that path !
Keep in contact with us on the forum --- I'm sure I won't be the only one who'll be pleased to hear of your progress, even if it gets a bit bumpy at times. The others will probably agree, once they return from their Long Weekends !
