Sounds like this could well be a variation on the eating disorders, including the laxative abuse. Try to arrange, perhaps on your GP's advice, to see a good local shrink for assessment and a discussion of treatment options, not all of which need to be very expensive, and might include referral to the Psych dept of your nearest medical school.
