How will they react?

I have known for a while that I have a binge eating problem but recently it has been getting worse and I feel the need to tell my mom and my stepdad and also get treatment. I’m scared to tell my parents because I don’t know how they will react. Sometimes I try to tell my mom but I can’t work up the guts to. I never know when the right time is or what to say. My mom will just tell me I’m being over dramatic and just making up excuses to why I eat so much. How did you all tell your parents about your eating disorder?
