Hello,
I'd like to start by saying thanks to you all for taking your time to read this.

I am not quite sure what I have or if I have an actual problem at all. Basically what happens is I get really hungry and then when I cook some food and put it in front of me and go to eat I feel full and sick and I don't want to eat anymore even though I can still feel the hunger.

When I go to sleep or lay down I get this burning, lumpy feeling in my throat and it really hurts, help please? As is have said, I don't know what I have but i am starving 24/7, please help me.

Once again thanks for taking your time to read this,

GoingUnder.

It's a new thing and you said "bothering me" look under the forums section of "depression" this might explain it although I'm not sure. Thanks forbyour advice + time as well.

^ Hey, how are things going for the moment? Sorry nobody has replied yet. If you want to loose weight you can healthily Smile It's not healthy and can be dangerous the way you wish t do so - i.e skipping meals. And everybody is different - you should be happy to show other that you 'think' you have curves - i am and i used to have a problem with my self esteem and eating too. Just do exercise like dancing/ walking/ join a sports team etc... and it's fun and you'll loose weight safely. And eat healthy meals 3 times a day with 2 snacks. You can even look onloine there are plenty of ideas and write them down or print them and take out ingredients you want and those you don't & keep it in a box to feel like you have control over what you are eating.

Hope to hear from you.
Take care of yourself please!!!!

Can't Eat...
I don't have any answers for anyone but cannot eat myself. I am perfect weight and have a good metabolism. So...if I eat, it goes right through me in about 45 minutes. Food doesn't even taste good at all. I know depression is a reason but how can I urge myself to enjoy food? I love to cook but by the time I'm done cooking, I don't want to eat. Anyone out there experiencing the same thing?

No desire to eat
I am experiencing the exact same situation right now and it seems that it is fairly common yet not considered an "Eating Disorder". I do get midly hungry but the second i try to eat something I have absolutely no desire to do so. Food doesn't taste good and it makes me nauseous just trying to eat a portion of the food. This has been going on for a couple years now but has become a bigger issue now than it was. I'm 5"7 and 24 years old, this is something I have been dealing with, while not at the same time, since I was 16. All the responses that seem to be appearing are to talk to your doctor, I don't have one and haven't for years as I have been on my own since I was 18 and haven't gone to the dr for roughly two years prior to that. There is no way I'm going to the hospital or a walk-in-clinic for an answer. If anyone who has posted on this who has stated that they are going to a doctor or a clinic in regards to this, it would be greatly appreciated for my self (and everyone else I think) if you could let us know what they informed you of. Thank you very much to every one who is brave enough to share their situation and for those who are trying to help.

My answers to an eating disorder
I have been fighting with an eating disorder for years, since I was 7, I am 19 now, I am 5'2 and weigh 93 lbs. And I have talked to many people, doctors and psychologists included and the best advice I can give is to find the root of the problem, such as mine was a case of trying to be better and reach my mothers standards. But the best way the doctor told me to work it out is set up and eating plan, just take it hour by hour. Sorry if that isn't much help but I guess everyone is different. Best of luck to anyone who is having troubles. Smile
