    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.

    I Dunno

    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.

    I Just Don't Feel Hungry

    Its not like I'm starving myself. I just don't eat when I'm not hungry. And I don't feel hungry a lot. And so, I've lost a lot of weight. I'm not really trying to stop eating, or keep losing weight. It just happens. Now my family is starting to get worried, they think I'm on a...
