OP, I'm worried you may have a budding eating disorder. If this is truly the first time you've binged, there's no need to see a professional just yet. If you binge again or even feel like you want to, go see a qualified therapist right away!... (more)

Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.
