Use to be when I got really down in the dumps, I could go for days with no appitite. But, that has change now for some reason. Now if I am depressed (which is not often with my meds) I eat more then usual.
How do you get when you are deppressed?
personally...it depends on your regular diet...to me it seems that those who eat less on a regular basis eat more and those who eat a normal diet eat more....Personally....i eat more....only because it gives me something to do other than to feel bad.
Lots of people just stay in one place during this period of time. Not even getting dressed and stayiing in bed or just sitting looking at nothing. And not eating all day. This is so like normal looking at one of the biggest problems with depression. Eating is on the top of the list for sure. That is why I am surprised at myself, that I have changed into the reverse now. Every moment I am looking for something to munch on. Most of the time it is junk food. Chocolate covered donuts is usually first on my list then cinnamin rolls. Never anything substantial.
I eat lots more which is probably why i am very much over weight!
and eating when your depressed is like a nasty spiral down and down cause when im depessed i eat then i get more depressed because im fat, so i eat again and try to find comfort in food which never really works!!!
During my regular, every day depression, I'd eat way more. When winter comes around, though, when I used to be at my most severe, I'd have no appetite. I remember times that I wouldn't go to the bathroom for days at a time because I wasn't putting enough into my body.
