I have had a "stomach bug" for 3 weeks now. I see my doctor on Monday finally, and only because I scheduled an appointment for a physical and plan to sneak that bit in, because the earliest appointment for a new problem that was available as of a week ago was end of August.
I don't think it's a stomach bug though. Originally it may have been, but at this point I find it hard to believe. I haven't had a solid BM in 3 weeks, but I also can't eat. My goal is ~1800 at a 1,000 cal deficit and for many of the days, I'm lucky if I can get 1,400. (I know that probably sounds silly to some because 1400 is what many of your goals are I'm sure, but I am over 300 pounds so I need a lot of calories to run efficiently.)
Anyway, there have been days where I can eat 1800 and then some - but then days like today where I eat something small (a small roasted chicken sandwich) and feel okay at first, but then gradually more and more full until I literally have to make myself throw up to feel better. If I don't, I am in so much pain that I can't even move without my stomach hurting.
I'm also afraid if I tell my doctor that, she's going to think I have an eating disorder. While I have a history of disordered eating, I am not bulimic and don't purge out of guilt or shame. I'm just trying not to be in pain. I'm sure doing that is somehow making it worse, too.
I'm at a point where I want to say *kitten* it and just stop eating until I see my doctor. I won't, because I know I need calories, but something has to give. Anyway, thanks for listening.
