As someone w/ an eating disorder, and who's studied eating disorders obssessively for 4 yrs, I suggest you SEE A DOCTOR. NO ONE CAN DIAGNOSE A PERSON OVER THE INTERNET. However, it sounds like what you are feeling is definately not healthy. If you really want to know what you "have," you can check the DSM-IV, which is a psych. book that gives diagnosis of mental disorders. If the criteria fits, then a doc will diag. w/ it.

There are 4 catagories: Anorexia, Bulimia, ED NOS(Not Otherwise Specified), COE (Compulsive Overeating Disorder). You can read about these in the DSM-IV (your local public library has this book), and going to a doc could really help you out. I have an inkling of what they'd diagnose you as, but I'm not even going to say it because diagnosing over the internet is...well...it's just not smart. Please get help.
