    I Dunno

     I'm almost never hungry.  Or rather I just don't feel like eating.  It'll happen every two weeks or so, that I get extremely hungry and eat like a starving horse.  I mean whole large pizzas, tons of meat and fruits.  Then I won't get hungry again for a...

    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.
