hey chicy,
im feeling the same as u right now...iv been suffering from real bad anxiety for 2 weeks which is triggured by all the stress of starting up business..iv allways been prone to it but havnt had it for years! til now...i feel sick and weak right now because i have no desire to eat yet im starving! it is one of the downfalls of having anxiety. it feels like crap everybody commenting is right and i know its so hard to follow there advise when ur mind and body dont want to..its almost like this evil voice telling u to keep suffering but deep down ur also telling urself what u need to feel better. i think the trick is to convince urself of not listening to the crappy messages inside urself if that makes sense..and just stay intouch with all ur senses...enjoy the sun...enjoy the smells around u...eat things u love to get ur appetite back. and talk to people...hiding it all is the worst thing to do....goodluck

Obviously not eating is a problem, whether you've become use to it or not. That combined with the missing meds, the drinking even if it was only sips, especially since it's 4 loco, which not only has alcohol but it also has caffeine.....both thins are horrible for anxiety, then the spice which is what I'm guessing is what you're friend was smoking, plus already being sick.....it all adds up and it's no wonder you're feeling bad. Those things seperately may seem small and not enough to cause any damage, but add them together and of course you're feeling ill, hungover, whatever it is. You need to take time for yourself, rest, and get better. Stay away from alcohol and spice/any other drugs, it's rubbish for your anxiety and will do nothing but make it worse.

You need to clear your head, slow down, and give your body and mind time to heal. If your eating doesn't improve, you do need to see a doctor because that will only cause more problems down the road for you if you don't. You may have slight OCD with your fear of throwing up, and that's something that needs to be taken care of.

You are obviously aggitated by how you feel because it seems that you take my response personal,all i am trying to say is that the not eating properly can cause you to feel sick spaced out dizzy weak tired along with alot of other symptoms i know because i have been where you are,doctors told me that i was suffering anxiety and stress and that is why i had no desire to eat or do anything,you need you face whatever is bothering you how ever small and then try some relaxtion tecnics,maybe counselling through your school but this really should help you,i mean you know offence but you are to young to be dealing with these issues alone please get the help you need so you can try and live a happier life.

I am sorry that you are going through such a hard time right now.  Anxiety is extremely hard to deal with but please know you can overcome it.  

However not eating is a major problem.  As hard as it is you have to try and eat.  I would suggest that you start out with small meals.  Actually you might want to start out with drinking first.  Make yourself some healthy shakes.  You can mix frest fruits or vegtables with milk or water in a blender and drink that.  Then move onto to the smaller meals.

The thing with anxiety is when you obsess over something it becomes harder to deal with.  So if you already have it in your mind that you are going to get sick if you eat something then you will.  If you try not to focus on getting sick if you eat and you think about something else then you might actually be able to eat or drink without a problem.

I would also suggest that you stay away from anything with alcohol or caffeine in it.  Both are stimulants and they can make the anxiety worse.

You are young and you need to get a grip on the anxiety now so you can live a long life free of anxiety.  This is not an easy thing to do but if you work hard enough you can do it.  I would start by keeping a journal.  No one has to know about the journal but you and you don't even have to read it.  Just try and write in it everyday to help you get some of those feelings you have bottled up out.  

You also have to eat right (yes you can do this), make sure you are getting enough exercise and sleep.  Most importantly I think you should see a therapist.  You can do this through your school or you can go to a private psychatrist.  I know that this might seem scary but it really is a place for you to vent.  Remember anything you tell your therapist is in complete confidence.  By law they are not allowed to tell anyone (not even your parents) what you say during session.  

A psychatrist can help you get to the bottom of what is causing your anxiety and help figure out a treatment plan for you.  That might include medication and it might not.  It all depends on your situation.

I really hope you start feeling better soon.  Please keeping posting here.  Everyone on this forum understands.  Hugs....

I have really REALLY bad anxiety of throwing up too!! so i really know what your talking about. I think you not eating has a lot to do with your chest feeling weird and just your body feeling weird in general.  your NOT going to throw up from not eating...that really doesnt make sence at all. loss of appitite is very common with anxiety! and food may really gross you out or whatever, but trust me i have been where you are soooo many times...when you eat you DO feel better.  A lot of nausia surprisingly stems from hunger.  You absolutly WONT throw up trust me...i have the same fears and feelings with you all the time.

You just telling me i wont throw up made me feel alot better (: its just like you know when people get nervous like on stage they throw up  thas whatt im scared of but it happens in cars mostly because i always need an exit in case i have to throw up,it l started when i was about 10 so its been really hard on me, its crazy though because last year i went to public school and i wouldnt eat for weeks at a time but now im in online school and i eat everyother day but my body is slowly startin to let me eat at home... but i really want to master the whole car thing because i have this new boyfriend and he wants to drive me places......oh no, thats not good, so i have alot of working on myself to do but thank you for making me feel not so alone. I think i need to first start getting out of the mind set first but eating in a car or even knowing ill have to get in  car is something im afriad ill never be able to do....i mean theripists and doctors always tell me i will throw up if i dont eat so both ways im terifyed, and one time when i went to the hospital i didnt eat for 4 days, and i did indeed throw up (sorry for the details) but it was stomach acid and it hurt so i know i cant go past 3 days of not eating at least like a cracker or water but even after eating that i refuse and i mean cry and have up to at least 32 panic attacks (i count them when im scared)but again thank you i dont feel so alone. (:
