User Profile
I have been struggling a long time now,been in and out of the hospital alot.Have been in therapy and its just not helping.I have reached a point where it has been about 2 month since i have eaten except for some celery sticks and i drink alot of coffee.So my question is how long do i have before my body starts to shut down?I am already having pain and discomfort in my arms and legs and im very very irritable.

Coffee too many times, dehydrates your body and makes you feel weak. Consider a small cup of milk without sugar for better recovery.

your body is shutting down, try the foods which you used to like eating, also try eating herbs, it sounds strage but they are briliant for nutrents, on bad days i find i am craving these rather than other things. if you try a little your body will work out what it needs. if you are having pain and things contact your specalist as it sounds like intervtion is needed now, or go to your local hospital they can help too in emerganys.
