How do I tell my family??? Help

I’ve been seeking help on my own but find it SOO hard to not use behaviours at home. Part of me thinks that if my family knew about my eating disorder they could help, but another part of me thinks it would make everything so much worse. I struggle with restricting and purging and part of me is angry that my family has never noticed. It’s almost like I want to be sick enough that they have to say something. Does anyone have advice or stories of how they told their family/friends and how they reacted??

I need any advice I can get.

i understand

i understand your thought pattern, because i so often feel that way myself. "if i get sick enough, maybe someone will notice and finally help me" thoughts like that. do it for yourself before it gets to the point where you do your body permanent damage. you deserve it
