Lizzie,

Unfortunately I don't have any "magic cure" to recommend. For the ultimate results you problem needs to treated under supervision of a relevant professional with the necessary counseling. The fact that you are willing to overcome your condition is already a huge step in the right direction.

Best of luck!
