I’m an Extremely Picky Eater

According to all my research, I do not have an eating disorder. I do not even own a scale, I have no desire to change the way I look and my weight is not something I even think about. However, food is running my life. I have an increasing issue with what I put into my mouth. Basically I think that everything is bad for you. Toxic to the body on a healthy scale....

I Think I Have a Problem with Eating

So in the last year I have lost +50 pounds. I did it the healthy way. Now in the last few months I have become obsessed, I am constantly thinking about food finding out what I will eat planning the calories for the day.

Depression, Anxiety & Eating Disorder

Lately I’ve been very depressed. I havent eaten in 2 days because I can’t and I’ve been cutting everyday this past week. I’m having severe panic attacks and I have suicidal thoughts. I hate feeling like this and I cant control my emotions. I want to live life positively and not negitive. Being 16 with social anxiety is ruining my life on top if that because I can’t make friends. My parents are hard...

Cutting and Pressured by Friend/Life

My friend has been trying to tell my family that I cut. She cuts too and sees a therapist. She will not stop telling me to do something about it when I don’t want to tell anyone. I’m not the type of person to share feelings with my parents, and I never have been. It’s been about 5 months that I have cut myself and I often think about not eating because I think...

Problems Because of Parents but I Can’t Tell Them

Half of my problems are because of my parents but I cant tell them because I know they have done so much for us. I have had issues with my mum since I was 9 or 10 years old, being called stupid failure, dirty, etc. Dad on the other hand wasn’t there for me. I grew older while these negative words surrounds me, also I was beaten quite a lot of times, then i started...

Why Am I This Way?

Well, let me make this very short. When I was younger, I used to isolate myself a lot. I had a computer, so I was addicted to it. I couldn’t spend a single day of my life without it. It was similar to a drug addiction. I was 11 when I got it and 17 when my grandma sold it. Which means I spent 6 yrs of my life in virtual life. I was...

Anaphylaxis Phobia

Ever since I had my youngest child (5 months) I have this terrible fear of going into anaphylaxis shock. It only happens with food, the same foods I have eaten a million times. I have never had an allergic reaction to food that I know of, and nothing seems to have triggered this fear. I was wondering how I can overcome this phobia naturally (no medication), and if counseling would be necessary. I pretty...

Anxiety and Gastroenteritis

From the US: Back around April/May I was having chest pains for a couple weeks. When I asked my doctor about it, he told me that I had gastroenteritis and said that it was probably caused by a warm weather virus with the changing season or by exercise and that it was nothing to worry about. I was also told that being stressed could make it worse. I have generalized anxiety disorder, so being...

Fighting Hypothyroidism

From the UK: I’m a 28 year year old female suffering from Hypothyroidism. I am really down because I am really overweight and when I’m down like this, I just comfort eat. This causes me to feel even more down so then I just eat again. It’s like a vicious cycle. I’m single and I’ve had a string of bad relationships in the past — my last boyfriend always pushed me to be a...
