DEAR DEIDRE: I’M bulimic and I hate myself. I feel I have nothing to offer anyone because my mother never showed me love.
I spent hours with my grandparents. I’d go for breakfast and call in after school until it was time to go home.

Mum would call me fat and ugly. When I was eight, I saw a friend kiss her mother goodnight so when I kissed my mum on the cheek, she and her boyfriend ridiculed me, calling me a lesbian.
I’ve spent my life hiding my body, binge eating and throwing up.
I’ve had one relationship with a man who was kind but then abused me.
I’m single now but I’m overweight and feel hopeless. I’m 28 and 24 stone.
DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry to read about how cruelly you were treated by your mum.
Her behaviour has shattered your self-esteem and taught you self-loathing, so understandably you look for comfort in food and punish yourself with bulimia.
The key for you is to learn to love yourself – and there will be so much to embrace.
My support pack called Raising Self-Esteem will help you build your confidence.
You can find emotional support to tackle your eating issues through BEAT (beateatingdisorders.org.uk, 0808 801 0677).
