Not eating

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I don't know what I like eating anymore <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; I just don't eat anything.

Tonight I'm going to eat. I'm being forced to because I'm kind of sick <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; The non-eating is having a bad affect on me, I think it came on a bit quickly this time and my body can't put up with it <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

I want to get over it, but at the same time I don't want to. In the past 48hours I've eaten a banana, a little bit of salad, a few slices of chicken, and a bowl of soup. I drink about 2 or 3 cans of red bull every day now to keep up my energy level.

It's getting out of control. I ate a tomato earlier and my stomache hurt soooo much <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; after dinner tonight I'll probably be in tears, and the worst thing is that if I get upset after eating then I can't keep the food down.

This week at school I'll be busy every lunch time and break time, so I'll have excuses not to eat, then when I get home I'll probably tell my mum that I ate loads at school, so I don't want any lunch and only a little bit for dinner <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; I know I'll end up doing that, and I want to stop myself, but when I find myself in a situation where I might have to eat, I can't go through with it - the words 'I've eaten loads at school' just come out <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

I need help, I know, but what should I do? Starting to eat again straight away won't help because then the next time I have this problem It'll be even worse!

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

    is it because u feel sick or because ur afraid to eat or because u think it will make u fat or something else?

    i was readin helly's post and u said something about ur weight so is it anything to do with that?

    how about start off eating nice foods like chocolate ice cream or sumfink! yummy yummy! <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    are u stressed out or nervous or anxious coz that can sumtimes supress ur appetite.

    Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.

    hiya, i have the same problem often.
    but i think mine cums down 2 confidence and stress, not that i think im fat or have a prob with my weight.
    do u think it could b due to stress?
    but then i do go through phases for no reason where i have months of eatin 1 meal a day, and then have phases where i eat non stop.
    do u find the thought of eatin makes u feel ill, thats wot happens 2 me, and if i try 2 eat i heave badly, also smells make me heave.
    i was told to go 2 the doc, but i cant tell u the same as id b a hypercrit as i never went, but do if ur realy worried.
    i hope things go ok and u sort it out
