Does anyone else find they have insomnia from the Anorexia? it didn't start until I had already had Anorexia for 15 years.
Does anyone know if Osteoporosis is common with anorexia? or is it more common only in the severe cases.
For the past week or so, I’ve had an issue with my stomach that I haven’t had for awhile. I’ll eat something, and about 5-10 minutes later my stomach starts to cramp up and I get really sharp pains. I had this issue last year which caused me to stop eating all together, and I have started that all over again. On new years of 2022, I was 190 Lbs- by the time December rolled around, I had lost 60 pounds (I was 130) from just not eating; I wasn’t trying to either. I’m at 140 right now which isn’t bad, but I just don’t want to start loosing too much weight again, you know? It’s just weird, I don’t know what causes the pain either. I have IBS, so it might just be a weird symptom of that but I don’t know for sure.
Does anyone have any experience with taking quetiapine? I’ve been prescribed it but psych wants me to look into it first due to weight gain side effects (I have history of AN so he wanted me to have all the info). Is the weight gain severe or is it manageable? & does being on a lower dose help at all?
I've been starting to exercise more after 5 years of excersice restriction due to ED. it's very helpful for my mental and physical health, but I fear crossing the line between healthy and dangerous. does anyone else have this experience or insights?
I am proud to say I am mentally and physically recovered from severe anorexia. I have no fear of food and I can honestly say I live my body. Please feel free to ask advice as to how to overcome mental burdens and strains.
How do you get over the guilt after eating?
So I’m in early recovery on my ED . So I have restriction ED when I’m in a lot of pain or distress I stop eating and drinking . But now I’m eating a lot I almost ate 2,000 yesterday and when I wake up now I’m famished if I don’t eat right away I feel kinda sick did anyone else feel like that in early recovery ? I’m writing down what I’m eating and food is tasting good again .
I haven't skipped meals in a while. but I won't really eat alone. I only like eating around people. I'll eat one 'meal' a day if I'm alone and it's usually yogurt and granola. is anyone else like this? I feel like I'm not recovered at all if I'm relying on company to eat.
