    I'm 13 and I'm NEVER hungry anymore.

    I can go days without noticing I didn't eat. I'm starting to not get thirsty anymore too. I developed a really weird sleeping habit. I fall asleep 4-6am and don't wake up until really late. I'm depressed and I feel really sluggish. Every time I stand up I get really dizzy and...

    I have eaten twice in three days,

    I couldn't care less right now a few kg's less wont hurt my 115kg body. I am not afraid of what can come. I feel half dead, what does it matter? I have lost everything anyways. What's the point in living a life that isn't worth living.

    I Need To Eat

    I hardly get hungry. I never used to be like this. I handle stress good and I may seem and feel like I have energy. But I have this feeling that if I don't start eating now and get my appetite back, I will end up being sick or damage my health permanently.

    Over the past few weeks I haven't been able to

    eat much more than half a cup of custard a day. I walk into the kitchen and walk out again without food, I get sick looking at the food now and if I eat solid food I feel like I'm going to throw up. What do I do?

    I'm not always hungry.

    Even when I am hungry, I'll lie to my mum and say that I'm not so she can eat. She always eats a small amount of food.

    this is bad. Maybe one of the reasons

    why I'm not gaining. sometimes I go a whole day without eating. especially when I'm depressed or upset at something or someone. when I take my meds I get nauseas and then I can't eat for the whole day. what should I do?
