Keeping fed (April 8th) by Ami
I’ve felt very anxious lately, and for me, with that comes a lot of nausea. I tend not to be hungry when I’m anxious, and I often lose weight without intending to – usually the first sign that tells me something is wrong. Keeping myself fed (with a minimum of 2 meals and a proper snack, daily) and maintaining a healthy weight is therefore a key concern of my therapist and other doctors. Eating has felt hard lately, like a chore. I feel so disinterested in food – any food, all food. I’m scared I will lose weight, which in turn makes me even more anxious. A double bind if there ever was one.
