We all struggle with our food, what with our fabulous guts and all, but you sound as if you have some other issues going on. You may want to ask your doctor for a referral to talk to someone about your eating concerns... it's ok to be scared to eat because you are afraid of getting sick/causing yourself pain, but you are definitely not fat! And you need to be healthy. Good luck.

Hi Your Dr. is right we need to keep up a bit of weight with crohn's I am assuming you have crohn's .As mentioned though at your height and weight it does not seem to be alot of weight. I like ensure or boost for weight gaining help it really helps me. How's your appetite? lol gail
