Bulimic, Bi-Polar – Church Burned Out with Helping Me

January 25, 2012

“I am bulimic and bi-polar. I also was abused when I was young and have had a lot of emotional issues because of that. Right now I’m living with my aunt because my mom said she can’t handle having me around. She says I’m too “needy.” This hurts a lot. My church has been very supportive of my recovery process from bulimia, even paying for me to get treatment. But now they seem to think I need more than they can give, too. Isn’t the church supposed to love people in need? How can I be less “needy” when I’ve had so much go wrong in my life?”
