I started taking a new medication about 4 weeks ago that has made me anorexic. I have NO desire to eat. I have had binge eating disorder since I was a little kid. In fact I am quite over weight. Before this medication I started eating healthy and the next week I started this new medication. I don't want to stop taking this medication because it helps me SO much. If I tell the doctor she will take me off of it. I have no desire to tell her. I do like the weight loss (even though it is only 20 lbs) and now I am liking the fact that I'm not eating and it's starting to become an obsession. Rarely will I eat something with high calories. I usually eat 100-200 calories a day and I have to force it so I don't die and that scares the crap out of me. When I first started the meds I didn't eat for 6 days and I felt great about it. I know i have plenty of meat on my bones so I feel like I won't have any health problems but I'm being stupid. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get myself to eat a little more or be more healthy in this time of eating very little. It's strange that I jumped from one extreme to the other, but I have to admit that I would rather not eat than binge all the time. I hope I haven't offended anyone. I don't mean to. It's just that I have binged and stuffed my body my whole life and now I feel free from food. Does anyone understand? I thank you very very much for your thoughts/comments.
