Default Is it wrong that I want to let it take over?

**Warning - may be triggery**

When I'm mildly to moderately depressed, I tend to comfort eat a bit.

When it kicks into severe depression, my body turns a 180.

And that's what it's been doing lately - I feel hunger but I have no desire to eat, if that makes any sense at all.

And the screwed up thing is, I like it. I like feeling weak and out of it. I like feeling empty. I feel like an old friend is saying hello, and I don't particularly want them to leave.

I don't want to fight it. I'm so tired of fighting everything - I want to let this just take over. Everything else is such an uphill battle ... I feel like letting this one win.

Hi Scarling :)

Yep , can totally understand where ya coming from .....
I too eat when im moderately depressed and don't when im on a real downer .

I think its lucky that i do have that buffer because i would put on loads of weight, and that would depress me even more so .

I think i don't eat because i don't have the energy to move really ... similar as you mentioned in your other post about not having the energy to go down stairs for a cup of tea etc...

J :)

I know how you feel. Sometimes eating can be such an effort.

It may be a thing you want to talk to your doctor about it could be a side effect of your anti depressants if your on any.

take it easy we understand

That's basically how I felt at the start of the school year. It sucks walking into high school and seeing that everyone else is partying and having fun, while you don't have enough friends to count on one hand. I basically just stopped eating for about a month or two. I'm kind of starting to get back in that loop, I'm hungry as hell right now, but I don't wanna eat I could stand to lose some fuckin weight anyway....
I hope things go well for you.

thats how i feel, except im really skinny, but my metabolism is fast so it doesnt work to my advantage. My mom doesnt buy any real food anyways and i just get down and dont want to eat. i find it helpful to eat out with some friends or exerscising helps me. I dont have much other advice, but you could try and eat different things and try new things. a tuna fish and avocado sandwhich with some mustard and lettuce and tomatos would be awesome right now. It could also be your medication, but sometimes medications make people way more hungry.
