Default Here is what it could be

Truthfully you probably have a stress related problem not really an eating disorder i did the same thing about 2 and a half years ago when you get really stress you can produce alot of stomach acid and when you eat it casuses you to feel sick to you stock beacuse your stomache is full of acid and it have nowhere to go. At least is sound like you have what i had the cure is alot of anacids. Tums is the best but DISCUSING!!!!

Default Neco Wafers are like tums

Ever have Neco wafers? They come in a white column-shaped pack and are each the size of a quarter. They have the same chalky taste as Tums. I don't know if eating too many tums can be harmful because they supposedly have medicinal properties, but if so, try Neco Wafers (not to be confused with Necro Wafers, which I hear can kill you [joke]).

I use to get really stressed out from life and work and I would try and eat when I was hungry and I'm surprised I didn't pass out from lack of food. Just whenever I ate anything I would get so sick. My doctor told me all it ended up being was stress.

Is there any other reason you might think it's an eating disorder besides feeling sick?

I dunno...i don't know the symptoms of any disorders, other than with some, you eat too little, and others , you eat too much...

I know it's not the same for everyone. When younger I didn't eat. I was very unhappy with how I looked. No matter how much I lost even passed the point of health I felt big. I was hungry but I hated myself for it and would ignore it even to the point I would black out.

Rosa-sanguina,
I know a tad bit about eating disorders. There is usually a distortion of what you see when you look in the mirror. No matter how thin, you see yourself as fat. Bulimia is when you gorge and purge. Anorexia is when you reduce your food intake to increasingly small portions. Both end up starving you. Obesity, could be the reverse of what you see in the distortion, but it hasn't been researched at all. I think I see myself as smaller than I really I. I'm considered obese. I emotionally eat. I ate myself to this point because I was angry and I thought I was so smart. In the end, I realized I'm the idiot for holding onto my anger and for coming up with such a stupid idea. My idea was to fatten up so that I could screen out all the sexual predators. Now, I'm trying at 50 years of age to lose that weight and it is a struggle.
I think you getting sick is more the sign of grief, stress, and/or fear.
