I think I need help…
So for my whole life, my eating habits have been extremely weird. I am VERY rarely hungry during the day, and often just the idea of food makes me feel like I’m going to be sick. Sometimes I go days with maybe just a mouthful of food here and there. If I eat at all, it’s usually in the middle of the night.
HOWEVER. When I reach my time of the month… I feel like I’m starving. My belly grumbles so loudly it actually hurts. And the longer I try to go without eating as much as my stomach wants, the more it hurts and it sometimes even makes me cry. Thankfully, my periods are EXTREMELY irregular. I have maybe one period a year at the most. But for that one week… I just can’t stop eating. Trying to ignore it genuinely feels like torture.
Does anyone else have anything like this? My friend is a nutritionist and she thinks I have an eating disorder. But I’ve been this way for my whole life.
Any suggestions are VERY much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
