I’m trying so hard to eat. I WANT to eat but I can’t manage to get anything down.

And only certain types of food sound good.


Is anybody else struggling with this?

    Which ED are you dealing with if you don’t mind me asking? What are the foods that sound good?

      I have a significant amount of allergies and over the years as I am more and more limited I have just had such a hard time finding something to eat and I think it has formed into a sort of anorexia (I have not been diagnosed yet) but only things like a specific brand of cookie and specific brand of chips. I’m limited to mostly chicken and turkey for meat and you can only have the same thing everyday. Now I will go days with only taking small bites here and there. I will make myself a meal and stare at it for 20 min before I can bring myself to eat it. Let alone being able to keep food down when I eat it.

    Oh definitely, i experience that almost daily, i have options for food that just,, it's like i can imagine eating them and that they wont satisfy me or taste the right way or that they'll make me sick. So mainly i just stick to snacks to fill me up, maybe you could try that? I personally have an easier time relying on snacks that i know taste good, dont have to be made or anything and you can eat as much as you want or need

    That makes sense. I deal with what’s called Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). I have certain “safe foods” that I stick to so I just try to keep those on hand always. I like things like trail mix to keep me going throughout the day.

    I have this issue because of allergies and a food processing disorder that makes me feel sick after eating. I stick to what I call my "safe foods" and thats all I have. For me, that's plain white rice, rice noodles, and ground chicken. Honestly, tru to eat whatever you can whenever you can and be gentle on yourself💕
