Dear Angel Baby,
Feeling out of control with eating is one of the worst feelings there is. The more upset you are about eating and then hard on yourself for eating, the more food, weight and appearance will dominate your thoughts. The more upset, the more you eat. This is a vicious cycle that can be broken. Also high anxiety and panic attacks, which are common with those who suffer with food disorders, can be successfully addressed.
I would recommend that you go to your college counseling department. I would schedule to talk to one of their counselors. I would also ask what services they have on campus to support your needs.
