Default Is it an eating disorder or just stress?

I have a very slim body type and my weight never change significantly. I think I can say I am very skinny, but not to the point of skin and bones, kinda proportional to my height (weight 100lb, height 157cm). Something, however, was bothering me for a while. Every time when I stressed, I stop eating. I can eat here and there, but most of the time I don't feel I am hungry and therefore I don't eat. If my mood is fine I can eat as much as I want and anything I want no problem, I am not concerned about calories and stuff (no junk food thou). Several months ago, when depression overwhelmed me, I start having appetite problems frequently. I start taking ssri meds and lost appetite entirely for a while. Before I used to manage get up and go to a store buy something to eat when I start feeling sick. Recently there was few occasions when I couldn't get up from bed, I felt so sick not eating (I was asking a roommate to get me smth to eat). Few days ago I pass out. I don't know anything about eating disorders, but anorexia. I am pretty sure I am not an anorexic, but my eating habits start concern me. Can someone please give me a feedback/advice on what can it be? (ps: I will talk to doctor about it as well). Thank you

I think anorexia is accompanied by a pathological fear of gaining weight.

No I don't think it's anorexia because as sensual girl said, it's accompanied by a pathological fear of gaining weight. Before (when I wasn't anorexic) I would have the same thing. My parents fought and I got stressed. I didn't eat. I failed a test. I didn't eat. I'm not sure what it is but it may be the stress.
