hey tennisdoc,
i totally understand. its scary how similar i feel.
 
today was the first day in a week or two that i actually ate. i forced myself to eat a small sandwhich and some iced tea. it was hard, because i was so tempted to throw it up afterwards but i kept telling myself that i cant do this anymore. so im working on it, though it is a struggle. i really understand what youre saying, so im here for you. together we can get better!
 
thanks to everyone for your input. im meeting with my therapist tomorrow, so ill see what she says. she already knows about this problem but its only been touched upon in meetings. i think tomorrow after i talk to her ill call my MD and tell him that these pills im on are decreasing my appetite. funny thing is-i read that youre supposed to get an increased appetite with these, it worked opposite for me. im kinda nervous, but i guess i need to just face that my health is important so i have to tell someone!

behindtheeyes, I am concerned whether your post-meal vomiting is intentional or unintentional (i.e., are you making yourself throw up by sticking your finger down your throat, etc.)?

Hi there BTE,

I too, am worried about the vomiting. Has it been going on for more than a couple of days? If so I would urge you to see your doctor straight away. If you cannot hold down solid food or liquids, your body will become weak very quickly.

Hi BTE,

I am happy that you are keeping food down. It isn't that we eat and gain weight, it is what we eat and how much. Try eating 4-6 times a day, small portions of healthy foods. You will keep your figure, I promise.

Keep up the good work,
hugs, Karen

Hi BTE,

I really think that you ought to see your doctor about this. Obviously something has caused this and, without treatment/therapy, it is possible it will come back again until vomiting becomes a habit. I am really worried about you. Remember we are always here.
