I am currently suffering a lot with my eating. I don’t know what any of it means and I’m looking for help with anyone that has similar tendancies and could perhaps explain what’s happening with me. From as long as I can remember I’ve been a “fussy eater”
But it’s more severe than people close to me realise.
Ive ate the same thing everyday for over a year and I very very very rarely stray away from my pattern. When I do I get stressed and overwhelmed.

on top of this I find I eat systematically. I have to cut my food up in a certain way each time.
My weirdest tendency is eating pizza. I eat pepperoni pizza. And I eat around each pepperoni and place the pepperoni and the pizza base under it on my plate. Then at the end of the meal my plate is full of little pepperonis which I then eat separately.
that’s just an example of how systematic I am with my food.
I know this all sounds really strange but anyone with any sort of advice or answers would be really helpful
Thankyou so much for reading

I'm so sorry you are feeling this way Tay, are you aware of anything that might have caused you to do this?

Your body needs to be healthy to be strong. It is important that you eat a wide variety of healthy foods so that you feel well. Restricting your eating can eventually lead to heart failure and death. I don't know anything about eating disorders but i saw a young girl, beautiful teenager on telly and she died because she restricted too much for too long. I don't even think it was very long!

It is very important you get help from a professional. Can you do that?

Are you eating enough or are you under eating? IF you're eating enough don't feel so bad about it IF you're healthy. A lot of people eat the same. However it sounds like you're being very specific about the number of pieces you eat, etc... and that's an ED thing. I believe you might have some OCD with it as well.
