Question: What do you think about relationships between people with eating disorders? Triggering? Supportive? To be encouraged/avoided?

I have reached a pretty good place right now, and am doing my best to stay here. My boyfriend is attempting to recover from anorexia without medical help. He has been extremely supportive of me, and I'm doing my best to help him, but he is still rather emaciated and is having trouble coming to terms with gaining weight. I want to be healthy, and I want him to get better, but in some sick, sad little way I can sometimes be jealous of him. And whenever I slip up I feel like I'm hurting his chances too. He was my best friend before he became my boyfriend, and we have a lot more in common than eating disorders, but I often wonder if this is really a "healthy" relationship, if you'll pardon the pun, for anyone involved.
