My daughter is suffering with an eating disorder, and my family blame me for it, or at least blame me for not noticing as I should have done. There have been a few heated discussions via the telephone and they have accused me of being a bad mother.
I don't think I am - I think things could have been better but I was trying the best way I knew how. My family were not around and didn't help at the time either.
I'm in my early 30s.
The family members that are doing this are my mother, father and sister. My brother is opting to stay out of it, and that is all the family I have.
My daughter is 13.
She doesnt eat. I did know and we were trying to deal with it with support from GP. It has been ongoing for a year.
No, she lives elsewhere for the past few months (since the family broke up with me).
About 70 miles away.
Rocky with my mother but solid and close with the rest
I have no idea what they expected me to do.
My father was very angry he did not know what was going on, so I think that might be his issue.
However with my sister and my mum I think the feel guilty for not being around because they live far away. I suppose they think they could have managed the situation better than me and perhaps they could. My mother has said I am a bad mother.
I asked my father to ring me because I wanted to try to make up with him and he told me it was too late to make up.
I'm at a loss what to do now,
