I would have done anything for my parents to do what yours are doing honestly... I begged my parents for help, and they were just like "O, your fine". People don't really understand how to treat those of us with an eating disorder, they either blow it off or get really afraid. They are just scared for you, and rightly so...
I know you probably don't want to hear this, but it's the eating disorder that makes you so angry at them..., you don't want them to interfear with you carrying out your binge/purge lifestyle. Really, you most likely will become very very angry at anyone who attempts to stop you, or keeps you from what you want to do. I know how this is because I've been through it. I cussed out a lot of people when they would watch me and try to monitor my eating (which is way out of my character), ect. It wasn't until I really wanted help that istarted to listen to them. It is very hard and frustrating to deal with, I agree, but those frustrations are the things trying to tip you back into health.

I'd give half of my life to never be home alone nowadays, because that's what stops me from binging but my parents act like everything is ok, even if they know it isn't.
Your parents are helping you. If they worry, that means they love you and want you to be ok. Take their help, tell them what's going on.
I think it'd be right for them to take you to a councillor and a nutritionist and, believe me, that would help you.
First of all, you have to keep in your mind you want to be ok, binging makes you feel ashamed, doesn't it? then try to stop it, I know you can
All the best xx
