Hi, I am only eating one meal a day now because I feel sick and can't function without one. The thought of eating scares me. This started about 2 weeks ago and I can see the weight dropping off which encourages me to carry on.
Can anyone offer any advise, I can't get out of this mindset. I was seeing a guy that skipped meals and it got into my head so I tried to do the same. I'm so weak and my family are starting to pick up on it. Any help appreciated. Thank you

Hi,
Why arent you eating?
Do you just not feel the need to eat or you just dont want to?
Are you trying to lose weight?

At 1st I'd just lost my appetite as I had a lot going on but as time went on I now feel guilty eating. I'm not too hungry and I'll only eat when I feel I can't function or feel faint

Unfortunately eating disorders can spiral out of control pretty quickly.It's like quicksand. The sooner you stop the behaviors, the better. You could try to challenge your thoughts, so for example if you find yourself thinking losing weight is a good thing, instead try thinking feeling strong and centered and healthy is a much better thing.
