Anorexia/Eating Disorders/Eating


I realy dont know if this is the right place to be but here it goes.
Im 14 and i weigh 37kg and am around 5.4ft ( not too sure about that ) but im never hungry, i get offered all types of foods i used to love but the thought of eating them just makes me feel sick, when i do eventualy get forced into eating i only eat a tiny bit then feel like im going to be sick.
Its realy worring because i used to eat alot but now im being forced to eat
Im getting constant headaches, stomach aches and sore throats and i dont know what to do, im actualy quite scared.

I love my weight if i could change one thing would be to gain a bit, but other than that im fine with it

Hi Libbie,

That sounds just awful. I am so sorry you are going through this. I need a bit more information from you before I can answer your questions. When did this start? Was it connected to an illness (like it started right after you had the flu)? Have you seen your medical doctor about this? Do all foods make you feel sick or just some? Do you crave any foods at all? Or is everything equally unappealing?
