i know....it sucks...

Depression and eating disorders are an awful combination.

Like you, I have found though that i feel more in general when i'm eating as opposed to restricting, yet if i restrict i end up with worse depression.

I've also come to realise that i need to tackle both my depression and anorexia at the same time - depression: meds, light box, CBT, CAT, daily walking my dog, rest/activity/work in balance.
- anorexia: sticking to meal plan/exercise contract, going to therapy appts.

something i have to keep drumming into my head is that i can't afford to let the depression affect my eating.

sorry if i'm rambling, just know that i do understand - take good care of u, kate
