It sounds like you are describing bingeing - or what is called binge eating disorder.  I cannot make a diagnosis online, but it sound like you are describing the way in which eating excessively serves as a soothing to emotional difficulties.  Are you struggling with feelings like anger, sadness, loneliness, fear?  It is important that you can identify the emotion that is triggering the self-soothing eating behaviour.  This is similar to where excessive alcohol is often used to smooth over and sooth away emotional pain.  Does this make sense?  Share more.
