You’re certainly not the only one.
With regard to the eating cycle, it will take time to normalize – but the problem with any of them whether it be straight deprivation or binge/purge type behavior is the restriction or the fear of overeating and feeling like you need to compensate.
When food isn’t an issue for you, it really isn’t an issue for you.
but it’s very, very, very hard to do this alone. Give yourself some credit, you’re trying to take on a lot!
I highly suggest getting help from a professional, if your insurance will swing it consider a few programs.
