I'm glad you posted here. Unfortunately binge eating and anorexia are like different sides of the same coin. You have an eating disorder. The good news is you CAN become a "normal teenage girl" and get recovery from your eating disorder. The problem though is it's not something that can be achieved easily with "tips" or "tricks". Eating disorders are complicated and have many causes. It's not just a case of having a bad habit like say, biting your nails, that you need to stop. You need help for your eating disorder. Tell your parents (I know that's hard, but they probably already suspect) and have them take you to your doctor. Ask for a referral to a therapist who works with eating disorders. The therapist will help you work on the issues that are causing this eating disorder. It's a bit of work and not as fast as you want, but the great thing is you are asking for help at age 13. I was MUCH older before I got help and suffered from my eating disorder for most of my life (I now have 15 years recovery). You can get the help you need then go on to live your life free of this disorder!
