Since I've lived with a few people my entire life whom all have overeating disorders, I guess it just takes some getting used to. Or, in my case, a shrink! I ignore their eating habits, or at least tune out what is not my responsibility really. Can lead a horse to water, love has nothing to do with it, and all that stuff. While it is concerning, you cannot change others. Let me explain what I mean.
My 2 older sisters used to make nasty comments about how skinny I was. I was not skinny. I was normal...just plain normal. As I got into my 40's and gained some pounds. They then made fun of how "like" them I had become. Um, no...I didn't eat until it made others literally, physically ill, nor did I ever weigh 350-400 pounds! I am not a frequent overeater for which I am truly grateful.
As bad as I felt for both of my dear sisters, I realized I am not responsible for their emotional struggles. Funny it took going to a shrink (more then one) to find out I'm the overall healthy one. It sure didn't feel like it most of my life. Feeling like a freak because I wasn't just like them was so hurtful. They bullied and bullied until I spent less and less time socializing with them. After a while I realized, unless they wanted to get better, it wasn't going to happen. End result...one did, one did not. One is much more healthy. The other has barely walked with a walker for years and she's only 62.
My heart goes out to you OP...good luck and stay healthy :)
