    I have stress induced IBS and general disgestion problems. I am terrified of vomiting and the fear just causes waves and waves of problems.
    Awhh :hugs:. How is that controlled? Are you suppost to eat a little often or?

    One good thing about my depression: I don't leave the house so I don't spend any money, I have barely any appetite so along with not leaving the house I don't spend it on junk food and I wear the same baggy clothes all the time so I don't spend it on much needed summer clothes. A silver lining... :erm:

    Re: food, weight etc and my very odd body
    I weighed myself today... I have lost weight and boy am I feeling the effects of it with the dizziness. I tried to eat more today but I can't even handle baby portions! I tried to make myself have a snack but could only eat half a banana before I was full. Half! That's insane, what the hell is wrong with my stomach?!?
    Ice cream? You could try eating really unhealthy things which are really nice and you might eat more of them. Hamburgers, ice cream, soda, sweets, popcorn etc.

    Already watched two episodes of futurama. I'm in one of those moods though where you don't want to do anything.

    How're you?
    Know the feeling, I'm in one of those moods most of the time. Sleep is good when you feel like that, or cooking horribly unhealthy things or er.... not much else actually. Sorry.

    I'm alright.

    Doctor didnt advise on diet really just gave me tablets but tbh my surgery is rather ****! I trya nd eat little and often and avoiding stuff like milk/anything too rich when I'm feeling a bit sensitive in the stomach. I do try and eat little and often but unfortunately its not practical sometimes. When I was working under a boss I hated my stomach was in absolute agony but now it has died down but today is just a flare up due to yesterday.

    You have to try and eat a little more each day and get your stomach used to more and more food.

    Also eat calorie dense food like chocolate etc. then even if u can only eat a bit it will help. Plus the sugar will cut out some dizziness.

    My parents don't keep any unhealthy food in the house. Seriously, the least healthy food in the house right now is home made pizza :facepalm:

    I know, I just have no idea how I managed it after my eating disorder - I'm full before I've finished 2 slices of bread! That's nothing!

    Also, there's a part of my that doesn't want to maintain but then I also really don't want to go back there. My head's a mess at the moment really.

    How bad is it that I feel like I've achieved this mammoth task just in taking a shower? I'm exhausted right now from the effort of it. :facepalm: But I also managed some exercise which will hopefully increase my appetite and make me fall asleep easier. It also gets my dad and my brother off my back about exercising.

    Okay, this entire post makes my family sounds like health freaks. They're not, apart from my brother. :teehee:

    I hate it when people(not in this thread) say **** about killing themselves/suicide about such little things in their life when they're not depressed or down in the slightest like they cant afford a ******* handbag.

    I've stopped watching back-to-back Buffy DVDs. It doesn't work any more. I was about to watch an episode where a character dies and I was in tears before it even started. I'm ridiculously teary at the moment :erm:

    I should probably try to sleep but I really don't want to :erm:

    Pfft. How knows. Something about other people being asleep, control, odd noises the house makes scaring the hell out of me, control...

    I'm in full-on comfort eating mode. Without any food. I really want to comfort eat right now but am stuck in a room with no food. I guess that's good in a way but... I haven't felt an urge to comfort eat in over a year IIRC. :erm: Not to really comfort eat at any rate.

    Urgh, I really just want something to just get me to fall asleep and stop thinking about all this crap. And then maybe wake up sometime before midday for once.

    EDIT: Thanks Laus :hugs: (and your profile pic is adorable )

    If your finding it hard to eat, might do you a bit of good to have some food? And if it gives you an uplift for a bit then hey .

    I can't. It'll wake my Dad up, he'll yell at me for that and ask why the hell I'm eating at this hour and then give me a lecture about depression and routine and eating and sleeping. Urgh. :banghead: The food thing is making me just want to sleep though, so that's good.

    Oh, and as I've said: there's **** all unhealthy food in this house and if I'm gonna binge, I'm gonna binge on crap, not fruit. So I'd have to make it which would result in one of the following: me waking up a family member and getting yelled at, me giving myself food poisoning or me burning the house down (as very nearly happened today whilst making toast :facepalm:).

    Sleep looks so appealing right now.
