I can't keep food down, what do I do ?

I'm a 17 year old female and recently just got out of a really bad relationship I suffer very bad anxiety and I've had a loss of appetite completely. I've lost 15 pounds in the past 2 weeks and it's really starting to hurt my body. Everytime I do force down the smallest bit of food my body rejects it and I throw it up... ??? What can I do ??

What does your doctor say about this? Sometimes a person goes through a phase after emotional turmoil where loss of appetite occurs.
fwiw, when I was your age I went an entire summer with no appetite, and unable to eat much after a depression. Eventually I started eating again on my own but there might be a quicker solution if you talk to your doctor

I answered this on the other forum you posted on, but again, this is very fast weight loss that requires professional help if you can't get yourself to eat, assuming the cause is anxiety or loss and not something else.
