> Intellectually, I guess I know a lot about what brought this on in the first place, and even what brought this on most recently (withdrawal from the now former therapist -- that's pretty much a pattern for me, withdrawing and restricting my eating), but how to get past the terror of getting even fatter, how to learn to see myself more accurately, etc.

Hmmm... That reminds me of my OCD theory. That OCD is an outlet for extra energy when stress goes up. Sort of like a release valve. That the brain looping over and over something, even something monstrously unpleasant, is an escape from the real unpleasant things. Is there any chance that you're mind might be doing an OCD'ish similar thing? Since you *know* intellectually that it isn't true. I'm not saying *you* are doing it. I think it's some sort of automatic neural system response to emotional overload. Or that's my theory anyway, no matter how harebrained it sounds.
