Anyone here have experience with recovery from not just anorexia, but a cycle of anorexia/bulimia/compulsive eating and being both underweight and over?

I plan to begin some kind of outpatient therapy with a specialist -- for 5 years, I've been in a cycle and I'm exhaused. I have talked to my parents who will pay for it (I aged out of their insurance so I have none) and I am not searching for the right one.

What have you guys found helpful in therapy/recovery? I think some kind of journaling may be useful for me as a kind of outlet within psychotherapy.

Any input? This is very new ground for me and something I am very nervous about, but feel I've no other choice and hope it can help me feel some kind of silence/peace inside instead of everything within me being so loud.
