Hi there, I noticed you posted your question 2yrs ago. I was wondering if you were successful in getting answers and you have overcome the issue with not being able to eat.
I have been suffering from Adjustment Disorder with server anxiety, I was going really well with my recovery, however a huge stressor has set me back.
I have not been able to eat for nearly 4 weeks now, I want to eat and I’m hungry. I have a plate of food in front of me, I take a small mouth full and end up chewing it for a few minutes and struggle to swallow it, I get 2-3 mouth fulls down, which takes me nearly 10 minutes and I just can’t force down anymore.
I saw my psychologist 4 days ago and she suggested having Sustagen (liquid food) 3 times a day as my body will get the nutrients it needs.
Unfortunately I have lost 7kgs in 4 weeks and I’m down to 49kgs, which I couldn’t even afford to lose that. I am still struggling to eat solid food and would love to know if you had any success.
Reading some of the comments with saying try eating this or that, I don’t think people understand, we love all food, we want to eat, but our mind is blocking us to swallow the foods (I know people are trying to help and mean well)
I have stopped going out in public, If one more person says to me “OMG You need to eat, look how skinny you are” I’m going to lose it and respond back “OMG look how fat you are, you need to stop eating” I know that sounds harsh, however when people say it to me, I feel the same way they would feel if someone told them they are to fat.
