From personal knowledge your body is so used to not eating that chances are your stomach has shrunk and your body can't tell when it's hungry. I'm anorexic trying to recover and sometimes i forget to eat because i'm not hungry. I can't rely on the hunger signals that other people can rely on. Have you tried seeing a nutritionist? They could help you gain the weight and guide you in the right direction.I see one and i have a meal plan... once you start eating regular meals for awhile then your body starts having those hunger signals again. So you'll begin to feel hungry after awhile. I don't know if i helped at all but i hope you can figure out what's going on.View Thread
When would a person know whether they should return back to treatment...? I was in IOP during the summer before heading back to College and now i'm questioning whether i should return in the summer.View Thread
