Are eating disorders ever cured?

At 13 I stopped eating. I didn't know what Anorexia was but that was my diagnosis. At 14 it became something else; a hidden and unspecified eating disorder. I later understood that I had both Anorexic and bulimic tendencies.

I am now 40. I am a bit of a gym addict and I eat healthily/well as a result (can't train if I don't). I have not had an episode of anorexia or builimia in many years but I NEVER buy packets of biscuits (I suspect most bulimics will understand why not). I won a charity food hamper yesterday. I gave everything except the bottle of wine and the packet of chocolate hobnobs to the foodbank immediately (and I was in 2 minds over those hobnobs, I tell you). I am now kicking myself for not donating those too.

Last evening I got some bad news.

A few hours ago my toilet bowl ended up full of regurgitated chocolate and blood but still I could not stop. I am now empty and drained and I have a bit of a sore throat (that's probably why the blood) and nobody is more surprised than I am to realise that I am still, after 27 years, perhaps eating disordered ever after
