I don't really know if this belongs in the 'Food' forum or the 'General Talk' so I'm just going to put it here. Sorry if it's not in the right spot.

Okay, I think I've developed an eating disorder. But, I don't know for sure. I haven't been eating as much as I should be for a long while now. Like, I literally wake up, don't eat anything until around 7 PM, and even then I eat a bowl of cereal or granola bar or something small and go to bed and do the same thing over and over everyday. I guess I was just self concious or something. 'Cause I'm extremely terrified of gaining weight. Which is stupid because I've always been small. I don't know what's wrong with me. I guess it's just a confidence issue, but that's beside the point.

Lately, I've noticed that it's a really bad problem so I tried to get back into regular eating habits slowly. But everytime I try to eat, I get sick (not purposely.) I don't know why I'm getting so sick when I try to eat, because I would understand if it was something like a huge steak, or ribs or something just 'cause my stomach has shrunk and stuff. But I'm getting sick, just eating things like, half a baked potato, or a taco. And I'm not stuffing my face or anything. Like I said, I'm trying to slowly get back into eating. So I don't over-do it. And at the time of me typing this, I haven't eaten anything but an ice cream bar on a stick, since TUESDAY, and it's freakin' 6 PM on Thursday. And even eating that made me sick.

Do you guys have any ideas of something I can try and eat without getting too sick? Or something to make me be able to eat again?

Oh gosh, I don't know because I've never been in that situation. Um.. I would try eating something like crackers though, something that didn't have much potential to be sickening. I hope you get better soon!

Oh, wow. I have also felt this way, and I just gradually started to eat more and more. But I agree with Willow, I guess you could start with something small and try to built from that.
I hope it gets better!

I'm going through the same exact thing as you are so I know how you feel. I can still digest without throwing up, though. It sounds to me like you may have a problem. I suggest telling your parents if you haven't already and going to a doctor. This isn't something you can build back up by yourself usually without medical help. If you haven't already, read some of the signs of eating disorders online and see how many of them you have. I really do suggest going to see a doctor as soon as possible, though. Don't let it keep getting worse. The problem with most people with eating disorders is that they never think their problem is bad enough to get medical help. You seem like a very strong person and it's good that you've realized you have a problem. You're a very pretty and smart girl from what I can tell and you have all of our support here. Like I said, I know what you're going through so if you need to talk or anything you can message me. I hope everything gets better for you soon. -Hugs-

Aw, thanks guys. -hugs back- I'll try to get my mom to take me to the doctor.
Thank you guys for being so caring.
And Ashley you're just too sweet. :D

I just ate dinner and I got majorly sick. Worse than I ever have with this problem. My family forced me to eat. I know they're worried, but they need to understand I can't do this overnight. -sigh-

Anytime, honey. And yeah, your parents forcing you to eat is the worst thing they can do. Just try to stick with lighter foods and don't drink any soda or juice, that would be especially hard on your stomach. Sit your parents down and tell them that they it's important you get to a doctor about this right away. If you let this get any worse you could die so it's very important to get help now. If they don't seem to understand why you need to get to a doctor about it or don't they don't think it's bad enough show them a few sites about eating disorders. It doesn't matter how bad it is, any doctor/therapist will tell you that you should get help right when you sense a problem. You're right, this thing can't heal its self over night and you need to take it one step at a time. I'm sure you'll be able to get through this and make a full recovery, we all have faith in you. :)

Oh, I really wish I could do something. I've never had this type of problem. Everyone gave you great advice. The person with the answers is your doctor. If I were you drink some Ginger Ale. Something in Ginger Ale settles your stomach and also crackers will do if you can't eat anything else.

I think I'm going to try what you guys said and eat some crackers, because everything else is just eating away at my stomach. I just got sick earlier again when I tried to eat dinner.

Yea, that must be touch. All that awesome food and you can't even eat it. Oh, god I don't think that'll make you feel better. I'm sorry!

Yep, maybe you could put some jelly on them to give them a little taste.

Get better soon, sweetie pie! Let us know if anything else happens or if you find answers.

Yeah, definately go see a doctor. I know it's sorta awkward talking about stuff like this with family / doctors or whatever (or at-least it is for me >.<) but just imagine you're telling us and you'll be fine. :3
They'll be able to help you with getting back on track and tell you the best stuff to eat while you're starting out.

Bread or something like bread usually won't make you sick, or like crackers because the soak up the acid in your stomach.
Anything greasy or acidic would be bad, like pizza or pasta sauce or a greasy burger.
Hope that helps! I know how it is, I get sick off of the slliest things and sometimes I don't eat and I don't even think of it.
Hey sweetie,
I need you here tonight,
And I know you don't wanna be leaving me,
Yeah you want it but I can't help it,
I just feel complete when you're by my side.
But I know you can't come home till their singing...
La. La la la. La la la.

I'd go see a doctor, but right now, I agree with everyone who said crackers.
Whenever I was sick, my mom would tell me to eat a few saltine crackers so it would help my stomach calm down.
