In brief: Destabilization
Eating disorder symptoms, like many others, are worsened by unanticipated stressors, such as the economy going poorly.
They are biologically predisposed but also learned as a form of coping (even though they are hurtful, symptoms provide familiarity & mask other anxieties). Consider a practitioner familiar with cbt for eating troubles who also understands a psychodynamic or existential approach.
