I’m 21 and my partner is 24. We’ve been together for two years.
I’ve suffered from bulimia since I was 13.
I’m three months in recovery but feel I might relapse any second because of my boyfriend.
Last weekend we were at the beach.

Every problem gets a personal reply, usually within 24 hours weekdays.
As I got changed into my bikini he said: “Wouldn’t you feel more comfortable in a one-piece?”
And his new pet name for me is “fatty” even after I told him I hate it.
DEIDRE SAYS: You can be proud of yourself for beginning your recovery. Congratulations.
But you don’t have to put up with your boyfriend treating you so badly.
I will be attaching my support pack, Abusive Partner.
