I really hate eating. - April 13th 2010, 08:56 AM

Not sure if I have an eating disorder; I don't know much about them. But I really don't like eating. It's such a chore. I have depression which contributes to it I guess, but it takes so much energy to prepare it, put it in a bowl or something and then lift up the fork and chew and swallow repeat. I have some bad memories associated with eating. My mother used to yell a lot whenever I left my room, so I tried to stay in there, usually without food. Could that be why I don't like eating? Or am I just lazy, which I'm pretty fine with?

I was given my Prozac by my mother today as usual, and I didn't take it because that would mean I would have to move from my near catotonic state and get some food. So I'm a little demented right now and I can't really close my eyes.

Aw, I feel so sorry for you and you should try to ignore your mum's yelling and your memories, try blocking out the thoughts and try to think positive out of it. && Maybe it is that. But don't let it overcome you and try to fight it back.

I'm here if you need, just PM me.

Hey, yes you do have to try and ignore your mother yelling at you. When you're not feeling great, the worse thing is to have someone else mad at you.
I am not sure that you have an eating disorder quite yet, but it could always turn into one, and they are really awful you do not want to get one! Also, is it really that much effort for you? Are you extremely fatigued or something, because if you really cannot be bothered doing simple movements, like eating with a fork, maybe there is another problem.

Thanks. I'll try eating more. I really don't want to get an eating disorder.

Thank you for being so nice to me. I was really worried someone was going to make fun of me or tell me I was a moron.

I think the fatigue thing might also be something to look into. I don't really want to move right now, but I think I'm going to force myself to eat some food. Thank you again for being so kind.

It might have something to do with your medication. Some anti-depressants will make you not hungry. You do need to try to eat though, I know it can be hard, but keep trying. Try to ignore the yelling, food is more important, as without food your body can not function, and you need to function. Just hang in there.

Yes, it may well be the meds, or possibly a temporary hormonal thing. One technique I use to use was to delay one of my meals, until I actually started to get hungry so I would want to start eating again. It would sort of condition me to like eating - mind you if you're eating very little already then it might not be a good idea!

Re: I really hate eating. - April 17th 2010, 09:43 AM

I don't have regular meal times and I have a wonky sleep schedual so I am up for the night and getting food makes me scared because my mother is asleep and then she'll get angry if I upset her.... I think I should eat now but I'm scared. But I'm going to do it because you've all been so nice to me .

Thank you thank you thank you. I like when people are nice to me.
