Can you help diagnose me?

I feel like an absolute ass asking stupid questions, but I need some guidance on my ED.
On the face of it, I'm anorexic:
- BMI 17-17.5
- I'm obsessed with losing weight, food, body size etc
- I eat 600-800 calories a day
- I haven't menstruated for three years.
But the complication is, I have an alcohol problem. I drink to feel less hungry and to get to sleep, at least a bottle of wine a day. That's gonna push my calorie intake sky high and probably explains why I can't shift off my weight plateau. Does the fact that my booze intake probably adds an extra thousand calories to my daily intake mean my eating disorder is something else? Alcorexia or something? ;)
I'll understand if this post is inappropriate, I'm just rather confused as to how to term the damage I'm doing to my body.
Cheers for reading!
