Any advice on speaking up about your Eating Disorder story?

I’ve been dealing with undiagnosed eating disorders, first BED then anorexia, ever since the beginning of elementary school (started highschool this year). Really only my best friend knows about my darkest days through my eating disorder battles, (and sometimes wars) that goes on within me- but I just can’t seem to gather enough courage or strength to tell my parents about my story:/ I mean I have gotten better for the most part- but like always there are days where you fall back into your old dangerous ways and life. I feel like only this community and platform is where all of us can really relate towards each other, because we mostly and sadly know all the struggles and hardships we go through. So I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced my struggle in speaking up about my story to my parents? Any tips? Experiences?
