    Nope, nope and certainly not. :^_^:

    Thanks for the help:yep:
    Well, really wish I could help, but I can't think of anything else to ask, which might be a good think

    Ask your GP. I promise, there is nothing to be ashamed of. YOU"RE NOT EATING...no one can take that as a joke

    Perhaps there is a medical, as supposed to a psychological, issue?
    my thought actually. depression can be caused by chemical imbalances....and isn't necessarily about my boyfriend broke up with me etc. etc.

    not eating seems like it could be caused by something similar....i mean, it IS a malaise of food (at least what the OP seems to be describing)...maybe it's a similar sort of thing.

    you have a good point

    But the OP said that they weren't feeling anxious, stressed, worried, down, upset, or really any of the words/feeling that are usually associated with depression. Doesn't mean it can't be psychological though. Depression isn't the only psychological condition that can affect our health.

    exactly my point. and while she may say that she's not feeling anxious etc. losing one's appetite is a rather huge symptom of something. everyone experiences chemical imbalances in different ways, which is why diagnosticians are trained to recognize non-textbook reactions to things aswell as textbook symptom cases. i wasn't trying to say that it WAS depression....but clinical depression can cause a variety of symptoms, and not all of them have to do with feeling sad.

    i have NO idea what may have caused this, but i would have to think that it isn't natural at all to lose a love for food. endorphins are released to congratulate us when we eat! why has she lost that reaction? definitely worth worrying about.

    Then we agree my friend. Going to the GP is the only option the OP has. We've asked the basic screen questions, all -ve. What's next? Nothing for us :p: It's up to the GP

    There are hundreds of things this could be. It would be a lot quicker for you to ask your GP.

    I lost my appetite, but with it I lost loads and loads of weight & drank a lot of fluids.

    Turned out I was diabetic, but as you're gaining weight you won't have it, but it illustrates the point that there are many things it could be.

    US, definitely. i idly toyed with the idea of doing it in the UK, and then remembered your winters :p:

    i may end up finishing in canada, because i might be moving to montreal next year (talk about winter ) but i am, in general, on the medical plan. :yep:

    yes. the university where i'm currently at accepted me into their six year program, where i get both my M.D and a BSc.

    i think it's fair currently to say i'm doing medicine, as i'm already taking classes like medical ethics, and have to follow rounds for a total of four hours a week for my "service learning".
