I feel so bad.
I don't eat enough anymore and I try to stay away from food and if I have to eat I try to eat very little. But this is bad because whenever food is around me, I have urges to just eat all of it and so much more.
On the weekend I tried to eat little, but after 7 on both days I got urges to eat and ate so much and I got full at one point, but once I had gotten up to put my rubbish in the bin I was still tempted to eat more.
I always have urges to eat because when I eat loads it helps me to just forget everything, but the main problem is how I look and if I eat then I will not change and continue to look horrible.
One part of me wants me to starve, the other wants me to binge and eat anything I can find. This isn't because I'm underweight (I don't think I am, at least)
I missed one period, but it started this morning, so I know that I am fine and probably still of a good weight. I was worried about missing my period and wanted to eat as I thought that was the cause, but because it started this morning I feel like this means I can starve myself now.

I don't know what to do.
If I eat I either eat too much or too little...
Any advice is appreciated x

I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling right now; eating disorders are a double-edged sword that hurt no matter how they look or act.

Have you talked to anyone about your struggles with eating? It's a scary prospect, but it's possible and you deserve to heal from what's hurting you. If you're beginning to have physical complications due to your eating patterns it's especially important to reach out for help. I know how hard it is, it took me weeks to tell my counselor that I struggle with food. But letting someone know is the first step in recovering and overcoming this (because you can, I believe in you!). If needed, you can be set up with a nutritionist that can help you create a plan for what to eat and when to eat it (daunting, but good).

If there is anything that I can help you with, or if you just want to vent, please let me know.
