I am 39yrs old and have suffered from eating disorder for many years. The centre i went to for help a few years ago said my problem is more inclined to come under bulimia but i have anorexic tendendancies. I find the struggle with poor body image a daily battle and have tried many times to just be normal. I find my main trigger is when i feel like im not in control of a situation having recently lost my father I have been slipping back into my patterns of binge eating for a few days to make myself feel horrible and weak then withdrawing food and taking laxatives. I know im doing this to punish myself in some sense gain a feeling of being able to control something in my life. Im tired of fighting this battle and just want to get others perspective on how to overcome such a mind controlling behaviour thats taking over my life.
