I have had this problem before.. mainly when im stressed.

This time it is different, everytime i think of food my mind automatically thinks i wont eat it, or u will feel sick after one bite..

I know it is all in my head but i cant stop it, i weigh currently 8st and my height is 5ft 4. I know this is roughly right, but i will drop soon and i dont want that! Everytime i eat something i start to panic thinking i will be sick, and start breathing heavily.

For example i thought i would try eat a Kit Kat. One single bite and i nearly puked i couldnt look at it or smell it. I started to shake and my arms started to tingle. I dont like this feeling and just want to get on with eating normaly.

Im asking for help, for anyone who may have the same or similar problem as me to talk to me and say what they do. Maybe some advise on how to start eating again without panicing all the time.

Please?

Dear Katie,
it's very odd to read your problem because I happen to have the same one. Except for that I always decide to eat something, than I takea bite of it than get hot flahses and it purges back up. Without even trying. Other times I'll say I want something, than when it's right infront of me I'll change my mind and say i don't want it anymore. I think that it happens to you because per say as far as the kitkat, you thought that you wanted it but than when you tasted it, it brought back the memory of how you didn't feel comfortable with your body. My suggestion is to ONLY eat when you're really hungry, and when you do eat, make sure it's something nice and healthy.
