Our expert says:
cathy, I don't recommend specific shrinks on this site, for excellent reasons, but Sandton is over-supplied with such folks. There's even an Eating Disorders unit at Tara. You've done reall well to recognize the extent to which you do have a problem, and that yo need appropriate expert help to get this sorted out.
OK, so you had bad luck in your first choice of shrink, but persist, as you deserve to get this sorted out properly, and, as you describe yourself, you sound as if you have more than enough insight and intelligence to achieve this.
