    What if your child is an adult that is 32 years old with bulimia for the past 10+ years? We live in Canada. Vancouver British Columbia. Any suggestions or support here?

      Have you completed the FIRST30Days program? I went through it as the mother of an adult who has been dealing with an eating disorder for 10+ years and felt that it offered me resources. I really feel for you, I know how hard it is, and I’m sorry that you have to go through this.
