sometimes i feel guilty and selfish when i eat, i orderd food a few times at the bar, and then couldn't eat it, at home now, and haven't eaten much, but just can't let myself eat. haven't showered in 3 days, having a hard time taking care of myself, laundry is piled up, i feel like everthing is falling apart

Don’t feel guilty for eating, I eat all the time. Binge practically, I just don’t want the weight. I have tons of laundry too. Feel better

This might take a load off you. Ive been eating non stop, basically as much as i can. I cannot put on weight for the life of me, and i am /not very active. But i guess whatever im doing is making it happen. So you should feel good when you eat, and not let it be your driver. Let your stomach fill (i harken back to bears and animals that need weight in order to live). Youve nothing to fear about, except fear incarnate, the guilt that would interfere with daily happenings.

Dude, don't feel guilty over eating, you need to eat. Regarding the rest of stuff, it always helps to separate things in steps, do not see it as "I must get my life in order", see it as: I must put the clothes in the washing machine and start it, then I will wash myself; like that.

i know i need to eat, just feel selfish sometimes, i know most people will not understand, it sucks staring at a plate of food, being hungry, but can not let myself eat. it's not all the time, i do eat some. just sometimes it makes me feel like i am only thinking about myelf

Me too. I sleep a LOT because it's a relief not to feel the...nothing.

I don't eat during the day even if I am awake earlier (like before 3pm). I feel like I literally have no stomach. I never feel hungry. It doesn't rumble or gurgle. I can't remember the last time I showered. I haven't done any of my piled up laundry for about 3 months...I think. I don't remember.
