From her perspective, anorexia descended on her daughter like the demon in The Exorcist

My mother actually used to compare my adolescent years to both The Exorcist and The Incredible Hulk, heh. I would be very surprised if their family was "good enough" or even "basically okay" before the daughter became anorexic.

The model for anorexic family dynamics used to be that of a loved, absent father who knuckled under to a nagging, perfectionist, clingy mother (think Barbara Hershey in Black Swan) so my guess is she's at least partly reacting defensively to that, as well as "blame the victim/mother/woman" factor.
