Our expert says:
Anorexics are usually perfectionists, even if some of what they choose to be perfectionist about is stuff that shouldn't be perfect. Delighted to hear that you eventually chose to be more perfectionist about treatment, and have improved so much. What could best finally help to end those irrational but powerful thoughts about the guilt over eating and not over-exercising, would be my usual recommendation ( because all the evidence shows it to be safe and effective ) and that is CBT, Cognitive-behaviour Therapy, if you can find someone who knows how to use it properly. One of the books I am trying to review and post about within this site, is about a CBT self-help approach to controlling eating disorders, so look out for that, too.
