hi you all, i dont have anorexia or bulimia but i seem to have a food phobia. i have crohns disease and lately found if i dont eat, i wont get sick or be in really bad pain.
yesterday i had not eaten for 19 days !! and my stomach was fine i was painfree but it was so hard resisting temptation of food all around me everyday when i felt so hungry and the other stuff goes along with starving yourself like being cold all the time, cant get to sleep, no energy, moody.
yesterday i gave in and i didnt just eat, i binged ! today i am likely to binge again because i miss food so much and now i started eating i feel i dont want to stop, but i know its going to cause me to be in real bad pain aswell
most of the time im too scared to eat.
Have you talked to a nutritionist? You can still be diagnosed as anorexic based on your BMI, etc its not just psychologically what would make u be an anorexic. I think you need to find a specialist to help you figure out what foods you can and cannot eat and change your diet around a little bit, You shouldnt fear food.
i would talk to a doctor.
i dont eat much myself cause i have a stomach ulcer, so whenever i eat i feel horrible, but i know it can make you seriously sick.
try to see what you can eat that wont affect you that bad.
Yes, you must go to a doctor as soon as possible to make a full check-up and see what's going on with you.
Do it and then tell us the results, ok? Meanwhile try to listen to your body the best that you can.
I agree with the other poster. If you don't eat for whatever the reason that is considered anorexia.
I wonder about how it is that people can manage not to eat. I mean like me if I don't eat I get soo sick. Meaning if I just skip lunch I begin to have headache followed with stomach ache oh my god is so horrible. So this doesn't happen to anorexics?
there is no cure, some manageable treatments, this diease is a curse and nothing short of, to blame the psychosis, mentality, personalit, or any type of individuals private choices at stake in this matter is plain and simple stupidity, crohns is a serious ailment! diet and excercise, and maybe some meds, otherwise, u deal with the pain, and eat ur food, end of story. good bye
