I have suffered with anxiety for about 20 years, and every so often i get a really bad spell and cannot go out or eat.
I am only having liquid type foods mainly, does anybody have any tips on how to start eating properly again??
Thanks.

Hi l feel for you as lm suffering too
I literally feel nauseous most of the time
When I’m having a bad spell
I try a mashed up banana first & drink plenty of water - milk if you can for nutrition- sometimes a poached egg with toast
I really have to push myself to eat
I suffer from anxiety and depression
When lm anxious I can’t eat & when lm depressed l over eat ☹
Hope this helps in some small way
It’s an awful illness & I’m so sick & tired of it too 😘

I keep trying different foods but anything solid gives me indigestion. I'm currently drinking meal replacement type drinks, jellies and other types of liquidy food.
I get more anxious because I'm not eating and then even more anxious when I try and force myself.
I find when I'm nearly asleep at night I get hungry and can eat a little then.
It feels like unless you have anxiety nobody can understand it, is that how you feel?

Yep exactly!! My husband said today “you must eat” !! I do actually know this but it’s so easy for others to say who don’t have a clue how you’re feeling
At least you are having nutritional drinks - how do you feel when you have really bad anxiety as I’ve had a miserable day today x

I'm getting that from people about eating, the most annoying part is I'm actually hungry but I just can't face it.
My anxiety has been bad for a few weeks now and I find I can't concentrate on anything, I want company but I want to be alone.
