Question Um... should I be worried? - February 22nd 2010, 08:02 PM

Okay, so I've been not eating a lot lately (meaning no breakfast, superlight lunch, pretty light dinner, no snacks), and I keep telling myself that as long as I'm still eating, I'm fine and I totally have control over myself, but lately, I've not been able to eat a lot. Like today at lunch, I got the lightest lunch they serve at my school, and I could only eat about half of it because I felt so full I thought I'd puke. Is this normal or should I be worried about this?

Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

Hey Sum

Well to me it seems like you are worried since you made this thread. That's all that is important, in my opinion. If there is something happening that is making you worried about your health or lifestyle etc then you deserve some help/support with it. Do you know why it is you aren't eating so much? It might be helpful for you to talk to somebody you trust about your eating and figure out what's going on for you.

Look after yourself,
Jen

Hey there,

It's not really normal, no. When you restrict, that's what it's called, your stomach shrinks. So unless you start trying to eat a bit more, eat six small meals, or add some snacks in there, you will keep feeling sick if you are trying to eat a normal sized meal. You have to start small, and get your stomach used to food again.

Have you told anyone about the not eating? It is concerning, and it is okay to be worried about it. Think about talking to a counselor or an adult you trust. You don't have to do this alone.

If you need anything, feel free to pm me.

Sounds like you've shrunk your stomach by not eating much. This causes you to feel sick when you eat a normal sized meal which gives your relationship with food a big dent. Ask yourself, what is your relationship with food? That should give you some kind of idea as to what's going on.

I def don't trust any adults, and telling anyone isn't what I'm gonna be doing. I don't wanna get into trouble for this.
