    I actually do that. When I am upset I have to force myself to actually eat but honestly I have no taste for it and ending up not even eating it all the way. So you are not alone :blushing: .

    i had a MAJOR heart :brokenheart: a few years ago. i ended up loosing a ton of weight and i really didnt have that much to loose. i was anxious, all i wanted was water. as sooon as i would finish a glass i was parched! i could only eat stuff like ramen noodles. but i think the main part of my weight loss back then was mental - meaning i had myself so worked up my metabolism was probably working over time. plus not eating and crying - ugh.

    SOOOOOO GLLLAAAADDDD that is long over with! i'd rather be pudgy any day then go thru that again. as a matter of fact, i dont think i could ever get that low again - im damaged enough to move past it and not get back into something like that. sad really.

    normal depression stuff - not so much.

    When I get stressed I eat.
    When I get depressed I lose my appetite usually.
    When I get pissed off... I lose my appetite.

    I eat for comfort, usually after being stressed.
    I lose my appetite when depression hits - its real hard to force myself to eat when depression hits

    I eat until I feel ill when I'm upset sometimes I still continue after that. I think it has something to do with the fact that I used to cut. I don't know for sure though.

    Cut? Is it what I'm thinking? When I'm depressed and down I tend to eat. When I'm anxious, I don't. If it's something that I've been crying about, I just drink water.:ohwell:
