That is not something that can be diagnosed online. It sounds like you may be seeing some of your mother's behaviors in yourself. You are 17 years old. I encourage you to accept help now. I would start by being completely candid with your family physician. He or she may enlist the help of a nutritionist or a psychiatrist & /or psychologist. He will physically evaluate you to check your health.
