Can an eating disorder be considered self-harm? 

I know that I used to binge as a way to hurt myself/punish myself. Do you think the two are related? Is binge eating (or other eating disorders) classified as self harm? Because I honestly feel that the reasons I used to binge, and the feelings that surrounded food, could fall under the umbrella of self harm. I know that food is a necessity, but the way I used to go about it was toxic and definitely always damaging. I’m trying to work on this now, but I’m just curious if others feel the same way I did/do.
