I've been having some good days and not so good days.  Today I'm feeling a lot of stress and anxiety and feel sick from the churning in my stomach.  I take omeprazole for the acid in the morning but having a hard time eating and need some suggestions on what may help.

Protien bars are good and easy to eat if you don't feel like eating. Depending on how you are doing wieght wise, carbs are quick energy. But if you are wanting to watch your calories, I would go with the protien bars. There is one called (or use to be) eas I think. My doc recommended it.

You want to keep fuel in your body. I am tired today and I think it is because all I ate was a candy bar. But I don't feel like eating. Some days we are just like that. No appetite. All I have done today is drink coffee, smoke cigarettes and sat by the computer other than walking the dog earlier. No ambition at all. But I try to accept that, not beat myself up and hope for a better day tomorrow. I have dirty dishes in the sink that I can't get myself to do. So don't feel alone today.

Do you know what is causing your anxiety? Or is it coming out of nowhere? What are your stressors right now? Maybe we can help you with some suggestions.

Hugs, Karen

When my hubby was having radiation, he, of all people could not eat. Doc recommended fruit smoothies/shakes,,,like strawberry banana with yougurt and milk, easy on stomach

I'm eating sugar today too Karen...that's probably why I crashed and fell asleep/

Take care
