Eating disorder and cutting/burning myself

I have an eating disorder whereby I can't eat in a public place or with people. My family don't know about it but I'm getting worse. What happens is I have a panic attack then I feel sick and no longer hungry. Not sure whether this is the right place to post this but I have also been cutting and burning myself, I feel so down all the time and I never get any relief from my life. I want to die but I'm too much of a wimp to attempt it I want to be happy and healthy but my life is in a downward spiral please help I don't know what to do anymore :'(

That's devastating and awful situation. Hope you can talk to a friend or a counselor to address your problem. You may have eating disorders and do not want to get fat. Or you have emotion or mental problem. You may engage to some physical activities to boost you.
