Honestly, not really. I either eat too much or nowhere near enough. I do try and eat fairly healthily and do manage that for the most part.

No... Ive been a mess about eating. Im not eating fruit, either enough vegetables.

But I try to eat healthy when I can.

But I eat lot of carbs and sugar, cant live without it, today I should pick a banana, but I picked lot of carbs.

Im trying to go back to healthy eating.

Sometimes comes night and I forgot to buy veggies, so I end up eating whatever I have left.

Food is total joy for me.
Think eating good food effects my mood, and really helps. I don't like take away or junk food at all

Eating has been a problem for me most of my life. I suffered anorexia for 12 years . Then piled on weight with medication. But some days i just cant face eating if my depression/anxiety is bad and then another day i can empty the fridge. I try and eat healthy well balanced diet tho and eat a lot of veggies

When i am alone at home and depressed i've been eating cup of soup and maybe a sandwich. I will eat more if i go out to the store and get like a slice of pizza or a burger. At least it's food in my stomach. Just 2 yrs ago i was cooking more, now i won't cook at all. I miss the protein milk shakes i used to make. I miss the scrambled eggs with cheese too, and the french bread i would make and slather sour cream on it and sugar. I am unable to cook any of that stuff now due to my depression. Last winter i did make soup in the crock pot, but i was not depressed like i am now. I am going thro divorce and my husband stopped paying my bills and giving me money. I had to apply for SSI until i take him to court for support. Court is slow cuz the virus got them behind. So i was at my wits end. I spent all my house tax money for next yr and somehow i need to put it back or i will lose my house and my dogs will go to the spca. So i am freaked about that. I should get legal support in 2 or 3 months and then i will be ok. I am trying to hold on until then. Before all this happened i was ok, just a little sad, but now i'm full of anxiety. I hope i am ok and can make crock pot soup this winter. I worry about my security and the future all the time. I am not eating good at all.
