My eating disorder is tied to my psychosis

I am diagnosed with otherwise specified eating disorder. For a long time, I thought I was abnormal for my eating habits. I wouldn’t eat anyone else’s cooking and would go days (sometimes weeks) without eating. I now know it’s part of my delusions. I’m paranoid that someone will poison me and I don’t see the need to eat since I’m dead. It’s been this way since I was a child. Can anyone else relate? Or at least understand?

Tell your doctor that you do not feel the need to eat because you are dead.
It's a thing. You can google it.

You do know that no one is trying to poison you, right? It's a delusion.

Thank you. I’ll tell my doctor when I see them. It’s hard not to believe it, when the voices tell me it is poised.

your food is not poisoned.
I know you won't believe me because you have not learned to never acquiesce
to a delusion.
Enjoy the journey of life. ✌
