Eating disorder?: Are you always binging and starving? Is there ever a time when you are not doing either? Whatever it is, it isn't healthy for your body, your emotions, or your mind. If you are motivated to find out, first talk to your family physician. Then, talk to a mental health counselor who specializes in such problems.
