Is it normal to go from starving myself to binge eating
I want to be healthy and live a healthy life, but no matter how hard I try, I can't stop myself from gorging and then starving myself. When I was 13 I nearly developed anorexia because I thought I was fat and started starving myself, and then I became depressed and starting comfort eating in really unhealthy amounts. I would stuff chocolate and biscuits down my face without considering the health impacts. I put on loads of weight.
Then when I was 17, I decided that I hated myself for it and refused to eat or drink (except water) for 6 days until I was sectioned under the mental health act and restrained to be tube fed and force fed glucose solution. When I got out of hospital after a long stay for depression, I returned to my unhealthy eating habits and put on over 2 stone in a few months. I am currently in the 'gorging phase' and I can't keep away from chocolate, sweets, cereal bars, doritos and anything else that is a comfort food for me.
Is this normal? I feel really out of control.
