It is important to understand that all behavior has a positive intention, even though it may not be serving you in an obvious way or even doing irreparable long term damage.
I would like to know when you first began binging and purging. What was going on in your life at the time? For example, particularly with eating disorders, when we can't control the outside world we find a way to control some aspect of our lives. In your case it is food. How do you feel when you make a decision not to eat? Do you feel in control? Everyone has a different way of dealing with the issues that life dishes out. The fact of the matter is nothing is going to change until you decide that you have had enough and you want to change. Understand that your behavior is causing profound damage to your body and can kill you if not treated. You need to seek professional help and find a way of getting yourself well. Find another way of empowering yourself. And be kind to your body - there are no second chances.
