Default Why Did It Change??

Since I was a child, I used to eat 3 meals a day, a snack inbetween breakfast and lunch, and a snack between lunch and dinner and then maybe a snack after dinner before bed - a banana or something like that.

When my brother died, he had ALD, my food intake went down, not drastically, but it went down. Generally I had 2 meals and snacked alot inbetween which I know doesn't help.

In October just gone, it decreased even further. I went from being a size 12 clothes to being able to fit into age 13. I've lost tonnes of weight. I just can't bring myself to eat. It's not as if the thought of food makes me sick or anything because it doesn't. I'm just not hungry so I don't eat. I'm lucky if I get .. I dunno, 1 meal and some fruit into me somedays.

It hasn't changed even now - I'm alot slimmer than I was and due to being sick in general now .. I'm just losing the weight and not eating through tirdness, and not wanting food, etc.

My parents haven't noticed, hell, the day they notice me is the day I turn into a dinosaur with pink, red and green spots! I know I need to eat more, keep my strength up, etc, but I can't, if I don't feel hungry, or feel full, eating just makes me feel sick. Regardless of the anti-sickness tablets I'm on ..

Help??

Really try to eat at least one healthy meal a day, with some fruit during the day. It is very important to your health! I really don't have any great way to make you wnat to eat, but I know from personnal exp. that if you don't take care now, you could end up really regretting it!
Even if you don't feel like eating, please do eat something healthy, or at least get a protien shake or something!

((((HUGS))))

I've always found smoothies to be a good way to get some nutrition/calories in me when I can't eat.

Maybe try having a smoothie or two a day? And try telling yourself that at x time, you will have a meal, and stick to it - even if you feel like you're having to force yourself to eat it, at least you're eating it. I had to do this the other night, as I'd barely eaten all day so I figured I'd force down a small chicken and mushroom pie - and I really did have to work to eat it all.

*hugs* I know what you mean, though, I'm finding eating very difficult as well at the moment.

Today I had a sandwich at lunchtime .. but I haven't had anything since and I didn't have anything before. Today I do have an excuse through, I'm in alot of pain - thanks to my useless body! :(

I'm a good eater when it comes to fruit, I'll have my 5 aday fruit wise, but that's generally .. it .. I guess. I'll try the smoothies and see where I can go from there, thanks guys xx
