Home treatment is very important for people who have bulimia. You will set individual goals along with your doctor, nutritionist, and professional counselor. Some of these goals may include:
- Reference Practicing emotional self-care. Don't blame yourself for your condition. Pace yourself, and try to spend time with other people who care about you.
- Reference Taking one day at a time. Remember that your goal is to feel better with each passing day.
Family members will also need to support the person's goals for healing. Learning about the disorder will be helpful for the entire family. Also, Reference show support of a loved one who has bulimia. Offer support if the person gets discouraged about how long treatment is taking. Listen to his or her feelings.
