I have no desire to eat anything anymore. My spouse had a fight with me yesterday about not working, I'm bipolar. Anyone else loose the desire to eat?

Don't do that to yourself please. You must stay healthy.

Why are you letting your emotions ruin your body?

I couldn't eat anything today. :( I'll get some kale tomorrow. Although 1 cup is only 33 calories it's an attempt.

Things like fights produce deep festering emotions.

Ppl use hunger to help cover up those horrible feelings.

And then when u *do* eat, all those feelings rise up. Very painful.

And to stop tht, u resort to not eating to help cover up those bad feelings.

And so on and so on.

I blame my step-mom for my eating disorder. She wouldn't let me leave the table until I finished everything on my plate. Many dishes she made was just disgusting and I'd throw up trying to eat it. If I didn't want to eat what she made I didn't get food. :( I went to bed without dinner many nights because she would make foods I didn't like. She even threw porridge on me one morning because I wouldn't eat it. I'll never forget what she said. "If you won't eat it then you will wear it."

Hi,
Don't let that awful woman have control over you like that.
You are an adult. If you think about it you are subjecting your husband to the same treatment by proxy.
I do wish California would open up. Y'all deal with messed up politics there.
Best luck dear. I know wonderful people who live there and have visited many times!
Your kale looks awesome!
Sincerely, JP

Well this all happened while living in the midwest aka Bible Belt and not California. I escaped that nightmare when I was 16.

I've been forcing myself to eat these last few days. I wasn’t hungry but I had a few bites of mango anyway this morning.

Subconsciously I think I want to die. It's the only logical solution to why I won't eat.
