I am in totally same boat HateEDetc - I know that for my own sanity I need to push her away but she has nowhere else, plus her therapist says taking away the security of home will make her BPD worse, but then the Connecting Families course I'm doing says to observe my boundaries which DOES mean push her away. Sigh.
Current scene is that I'm still buying the food, she is choosing mostly veges but I'm trying to slow down on buying them, but I've decided that i no longer after 3 years want to risk my own heart health by eating high cal and carb, so I want veges in the house. Lots of cutting. She has no job but gets a benefit. I sleep badly and worry about her. She's refusing to visit doctor except the psych who prescribes her meds. I've suggested that if she can't eat with the family and try to eat more than just raw carrots and steamed brocolli she needs to go and stay with her Dad. It will make her eating worse because he has no money for food so she will just buy carrots, but I'm past caring now. For my own sanity I need to look to my own health and life for awhile. Feeling guilty but not guilt - ah - now I understand why they call it 'dialectic' therapy at the course I'm at - it's about accepting while not accepting.
