does anywhere get real bad anxiety when it comes to food? I had went throw a really bad downfall in life last year which cause me to lost my appetite completely. due to this I get really anxious when given a plate full of food. even when it's like a small kid size serving I get anxious to even eat or finish it. is there is way for me to actually eat with having a small anxiety attack?

      Definitely. Big meals freak me out. Especially when they're in public. I very much prefer small (nutritious) snacks throughout the day. And sometimes that's still frightening.

      If meals feel overwhelming or too much try eating very small snacks as much as you can throughout the day a couple apple slices here and a cookie there will at least make sure you have nutrients in your belly

      Im glad you have someone looking out for you. Perhaps talking to a professional would be best. Your case seems serious but hard to identify the cause. My therapist helps me a lot. Maybe one will help you get what you need.

      I have tried small pudding and jello but just eating overwhelms me. I don't know if it's an eating disorder cause I don't have shame or body image. It's just any food just makes me feel anxious. Cause so far my bf has finally got me eating like five dinosaurs nuggets when I use to just live on water or drinks.

      This is an interesting question. Is it eating disorder related, like with shame and body- image? I have experience with that, myself. Also, besides that, i went through a really bad, traumatic time in my life and totally lost my appetite too. I got lots of stomach pain and nausea along with it. I finally realized i liked salads (they didnt make me sick), and thats all i ate for a while there. Maybe youd like small puddings or jellos. Maybe a sandwich (sometimes i make a bunch and put them inbindividual baggies to grab later). Food like that feels less overwhelming to me. You can just grab it and its not a big commitment. Whatever it is thats going on, I'm rooting for you and wish you the best ❤️
