emotional... non-eating =(

Postby madeline » Fri Jun 08, 2007 12:34 pm

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this, but I just don't know what to do. Sometimes I have days where I'm really down, and it's like a dream world where I don't realise the world is going past, and I just don't want to see anyone, go anyone, do anything... and that includes eating. I'm having one of those days today... I've had a cup of milo this morning, but I just don't feel hungry because I'm so down.

Yeah... I don't know if anyone's going to reply to this but it felt a tiny bit better getting it off my chest.

Most certainly welcome to post!! And certainly happy to reply! Feeling down can affect your eating patterns be it more or less food you eat. Either way it's not good for you. Try and get out and do some exercise - it helps. If this is an ongoing thing, try and find out why and if you can do something to change it or go and see you GP for help.

Hey Madz, sorry to hear you're feeling down today. We're all here for you and you can vent as much as you like and write whatever topics you want.

Do something nice for yourself today - you deserve it :).

If the sad days continue, make sure you see someone about it - at least visit your GP.

I hope you feel better soon too. For me its overeating when I feel down but either one sux, if your not eating your body isnt getting the fuel it needs to pick you up. But i'm sure you will eat when you feel up to it. We are always here for you and you can post for sure. That is why this forum is here to help...

I comfort eat when I'm down but can relate to what you said about how you feel, and about not eating or doing anything. Mostly because when I get down, really down, I stop doing things I normally love to do, or things that I ought to do (like take my asthma medication daily). It's self-sabotaging negative self talk that does it, and most of the time I'm not even aware of it.

Sometimes I just stay still, really still, cos then I know I am safe. I know that these moods pass - they always have and I've had them all my life. Giving myself permission to feel them, let them 'be', was important for me.

I used to feel guilty all the time (still do a lot of the time) when I'm not 'happy'. Who teaches us that we have to be happy all the time, especially around other people, including family?????

The tip about exercising is spot on - exercising really works to fix mood swings. I find that taking two omega 3 capsules, and a zinc/magnesium tablet a day helps as well.
