    One of my biggest challenges being around family (at the holidays or otherwise) is that I have four sisters, all of whom have had eating disorders and most of which still have disordered eating to this day (ex: intermittent fasting, eating “clean”, still very weight and body-focused)…it’s extremely triggering to me and yet I only see my family once a year at most-sometimes only every few years. Any advice on how to discuss the fact that this talk is triggering to me?
