hi everyone. I just need some advice and a bit of support.

my Partner works away and when he is home I eat fairly ok, this is because he will make sure I eat. When he is away I always always always fall into a pattern of not eating. I can’t explain why. I don’t hate my figure, I don’t look at calories in things. I choose not to eat all day, even if it makes me feel sick or dizzy or tired or ill. Then I will have my tea on a night time, and repeat the next day. I really can’t explain why I do this, eating just doesn’t appeal to me through the day, if I do eat, I will be forcing myself.

Doesn't sound like an ED. Sounds like you're just overly tied to your partner's company.

Yeah it doesn’t sound like an eating disorder. You aren’t overly restricting, binging or purging. It just sounds like you don’t have much of an appetite in general and when your partner is away can’t be bothered. xo, j
