Eating Disorder vs Bipolar Disorder

I was taking with my therapist this morning about my eating disorder and how my bipolar has massively influenced it. As it’s always been linked with my trying to gain control, being told you have an incurable illness was going to set every trigger off.

Does anyone else with both have the need to massively purge when they’re manic? I don’t even know why because I was never a purger. For some reason when I’m manic I just want to be sick whenever I eat. My psychiatrist thinks we should talk more about it and understand why.

I mean it’s simple right? When I’m manic I’m out of control so surely my body is simply resorting back to my eating disorder and trying to gain some form of control.

I’d love to hear your thought on this 💕
