    Phobia of eating and bowel movements

    Hi

    I just want to say I am not anorexic. I was happy with my body 5'9 and 12 stone.

    Since having some HA issues around ladies problems I am terrified to have a bowel movement as thats when i some symptoms. This means I usually dont want to eat because of anxiety...particularly anything stodgy or carby. My stress and lack of movement and diet has also given me constipation.


    Most days I live on fruit juices, whey protein, nurishment can drinks and bits of fruit with maybe some crisps or a choc bar to beef up my calories. Worked out its 1000 calories a day on average. I try to get my fibre,protein and vitamins in. My anxiety means I only really crave bad foods instead of veggies.

    This means I am currently just under 11 and half stone after 3 and a half weeks.

    Want to eat but scared.

    You really need to see a doctor to get some help with this.

    Please, please make sure you mention the anxiety? It isn't healthy for you to be living like this.

    Please, please make sure to talk to the doctor about this. I had a issue like this two years ago when I had a stomach issue, I came so cared of feeling ill after eating I just refused to eat out of fear of what would happen. It was so unhealthy and it ended up causing more issues. Please, please make sure you talk about your anxiety.
