I suggest that you seek the help of a therapist who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. How old are you? How long has this been going on? Does your family know? I hope you have support in your life. This is a very serious behavior associated with an eating disorder, but the underlying issues are emotional. That is why it's important to get professional help to stop these behaviors. Please continue to share with those who are a support for you, and get help!! Take care.
