Um so I restricted/had fucked up eating stuff 5 years ago for a year and a half and then I switched to cutting and have had bouts of restricting (usually a few days and on occassion since then). Ive been restricting /counting calories for the past week and idk what to call this or if its even a big deal. Its not like im underweight or have lost weight

Just because you aren’t underweight or haven’t lost weight doesn’t mean this isn’t a big deal. Restricting and counting calories for extended periods of time can wreak havoc on your system. Even if it isn’t a full-blown eating disorder, you seem to have disordered eating and disordered thinking. 

I strongly encourage you to talk to a professional about this to develop a more healthy way of coping with negative emotions.
