Well lately i have been feeling like food is disgusting to me.
I feel like it will ruin me , so i dont eat it, well i have spent 2 day barely eating anything under this feeling . Do I have a disorder .
Please help.
It has been making me pretty sad and depressed as well, i feel bad about myself , and i feel rejected and lonely.

Hey there,

It seems rather plausible that you DO have disordered eating, and I'd suggest you possibly get to the root of why you feel this way against food, or you could see a therapist and talk it out,

Good luck,

Jay.

Hey,

We aren't professionals here, so I can't diagnose you with anything- you'll need someone who's been to medical school for that, as opposed to a geordie lass who has read a lot of medical books.

I know it sounds difficult, but I think you need to change the way you think of food. It's not some impure thing that will "ruin" you, or cause you to gain weight, or become out of control- it's the very essence of life. It's what keeps us alive, what enables us to be able to live. We need food, and we depend on it. That's just how life is, and we can't change that. If you want to live, you have to eat. Simple. Eat at home, eat in a hospital, or die. No other options there, unfortunately.

Not eating is gonna have a negative mental effect on you. The inexplicable sadness? The feeling bad about yourself? Very likely linked to lack of food. There was a study a long time ago that deprived healthy individuals of food, and recorded the results. One of the most surprisingly results was that starvation caused depression in a lot of cases.

Pull yourself out of this while you still can- or better yet, talk to your parents, or a doctor. Get some help and support, and get your life back.

Take as long as you need.

Food isn't bad for you. That's just it. You need it to survive. You're not supposed to be eating more than necessary, because then it could be unhealthy. (Chips, candy in excessive amounts). Look at food as nutrition. Start calling it that in your mind. Instead of eating food, you're eating nutrition. You're fueling your body with it. Because I think we can all agree that our bodies require nutrition. So if it helps to think about it like that, then do that. I think that the negative emotions you are feeling can be chalked up to not eating. Food is essential. Not only that, but food (or nutrition rather) is going to help you to feel better about yourself and is going to help you ultimately, and most importantly, stay healthy.

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. I suggest talking to someone about this though, that way you can feel good about eating. Not just eating because its good for you. You deserve to feel good when you eat <3
