My friends and family dont support me in recovery? I feel lonely what should I do?

I'm 16, almost 17. I've been struggling with bulimia since I was 13. I'm trying to recover, but it feels so hard. I don't really have a support group to be there for me. I'm seeing a therapist, a nutritionist, and my doctor. Which is helpful, but none of my friends or family are supportive. My... show more I'm 16, almost 17.

I'm trying to recover, but it feels so hard. I don't really have a support group to be there for me.
I'm seeing a therapist, a nutritionist, and my doctor. Which is helpful, but none of my friends or family are supportive.
My friends make jokes about how I don't eat.
My dad just yells at me because the food I binge on cost a lot of money.
My step mom doesn't really want to talk about it and thinks it's stupid. ( At a point she was encouraging me to take laxative teas and stuff for weightloss, but once I became underweight she didn't want me to anymore? Idk how she feels about it )
My other family members don't really talk to me much, my brother makes fun of me because I apparently " lost too much weight and look gross " in his opinion.
I feel so lonely, I tried to talk to my school counselor about it but she said my eating disorder wasn't serious enough unless I didn't eat for a week.
It feels like nobody is putting in much effort to help me, I think it's because I'm gaining because of my meal plan I got from my therapist but I don't know.
I'm 5'1 and 2 weeks ago when I weighed myself I was 88lbs, but my nutritionist said I am not allowed to weigh myself anymore so I don't know how fat I've gotten. I'm guessing 97-ish but I could be wrong. Not sure.
It makes me wonder that if my family and friends don't want to help, should I just lose weight until I look thin enough for them to want to help me?
