I was anorexic for about 15 years from my teens through my 20s. I have been okay, for the most, for the 5-7 years. Over the past 3-4 months I have been experiencing pretty intense stomach pains and almost constant nausea. My doctors are trying to narrow down the cause so far, they have ruled out a lot but no definitive answer. I guess my question is: Because of the pain throughout the day and, specifically, the terrible bloating, nausea, vomitting, and pain after eating I have been going days without eating and may have a Vitamin water for the nutrients instead. Also, I do not get the hugry sensation anymore. Can this cause me to revert to my ED days? I catch myself feeling good about dropping numbers on the scale -I was a healthy weight - so I was told - before all of this - 135 and 5'7". I am down 15 pounds since mid-May.
I thought that all of this was behind me - is questionning this a good thing? I do not know what to do right now - I know that I am frustrated by my physical problems and need to end a long distance relationship that is just not working for me but I am handling those issues. I guess I need some direction. Thanks.
