Eating Disorders

Not Sure...

...but I'm not entirely sure I do/don't have an eating disorder. Maybe someone can help clarify it for me?

I'm 17; I've had an unhealthy relationship with food for as far as I can remember. Mostly, following in my family's footsteps, I've had problems with compulsive overeating. Between my freshman and sophmore year of High School I gained 41 lbs due to my incesant binging. That winter, my Mom forced me to go to OA. I lost 23 lbs there before I got into the habit of just not eating at all. I'm still sort of there, but with periods of binging as well. Since sophmore year I've lost about 60 lbs. Now, I know it's not all about the numbers, but that's how it's always been for me at least. I've had periods of purging too...but I feel like I don't fit into one category of eating disorder because I go both ends of the spectrum. I just want to find a filling medium and be healthy. But does any of this mean that I have an eating disorder?
