I am sooo depressed. I live with my parents and my mom are very ill. For the past 3 days I have been binge eating like mad. I even drank alcohol, which I almost never do. How am I going to come back to my senses?

In the past, I've overeaten to the point of pain, a form of self-harm and relief from anxiety. I don't binge and haven't for years. I do vomit on occasion after I've eaten something I don't need, usually sweets or something without much nutritional value for a meal. I've been getting better about not doing this, but I did vomit last night. My emotional eating now comes in the form of neglecting nutrition. Maybe mistreating myself or punishing myself for mistakes or not wanting to lose weight because it protects me from close relationships. I've been through all of this before. It's not so much a matter of blind faith that I'll be okay this time. Last time I lost weight, I had a bad experience. This time, I have to trust that I'm on a better path but also make a significant effort to maintain stronger boundaries. And a little bit of hoping for the best. We'll see what happens.
