Do I have/had an eating disorder (so confused)

OK so, about 2009 I decided I needed to change my eating habits, as I wasn't very healthy. I wasn't over weight (at 9st 4 and a hight of 5ft 4) but feared I soon would be if I carried on. So I stopped snacking, puddings and banned things like sweets, pizza etc.. I lost a few pounds and felt this wasn't enough, went vegetarian and decreased my portion sizes, lost some more weight (8st 4). Then one day I tried making my self sick not knowing anything about eating disorders (or even ever hearing the word bulimia), and was soon purging my dinner every night. this carried on for about a year, my weight fluctuated alot between 8st - 8st.7 ish. Then I decided that I needed to stop purging but developed a fear that I would gain loads of weight, and was eating next to nothing. I also started doing a small exercise routine every morning and night, also abusing laxatives. My weight got down to 6st 11 in 2011 and a hight of 5ft.5. I haven't had a period in 2.5 years. I now binge and purge up to 5 times a day, 3 times if I am at college. I have gained weight from the binging I think. I now weight 7st 5 too 7st 7 and still take laxatives. These still a few things ive not explained/added here but if your still reading your probely getting bored now haha. Do you think i could have had or still have an eating disorder?
