Does the process of stopping bulimia make anxiety worse?

I am going to be graduation on May 18 with a degree in health and physical education! Although I cannot wait to graduate i'm worried about the rest of my life. I currently llive in PA but I plan on moving to North Carolina the week after I graduate. However, I have very severe anxiety due to several concussions from playing soccer and a few other reasons. I have been bulimic for about 5 years now and have just told my therapist about 2 weeks ago. She does not specialize in eating disorders but she does give me great advice. I'm scared the process of quitting will make my anxiety worse and possibly postpone moving. I have a history of passing out as well from the concussions and i'm also scared that the anxiety will bring back my passing out. Every time I pass out my license gets taken away for 6 months.

Because I am I have studied health education, I am fully aware of all the damage I am doing to my body but am unable to control it. I hate myself for doing and I am extremely embarrassed to tell basically anyone. No one knows expect my therapist but i'm afraid she doesn't fully understand what I am going through.

so yeahhh, I don't know what to doooo!
