Recovery & Parents

This is my first post, but I have been a (lurking) member for awhile, haha.

I'm thinking about seeking treatment for my Bulimia and I'm just curious if any of you have told your parents and how they reacted? I assume most people's parents caught them or confronted them perhaps, but how many of you actually just came out and told them? How did you do it? What did they say?

I'm going to make a doctor's appointment to talk to my doctor about depression and therapy. My family has a history of mental illness which is why I'm finding it so difficult to tell my mom about this. Her father was schizophrenic and so I feel like I'll be seen as a huge failure in her eyes.

Thanks guys!
