Food sucks, what do I do

Recommended Posts

Look, I dont know where else to ask about this. I do not have an eating disorder, but all that comes up when I ask daddy google is about OCD and EDs, and I've never been concerned about my weight. I'm fat, I dont care. I used to like eating but now I'm just turned off by literally everything under the sun, not even just food. The dog is kinda wet - I wanna throw up. The butter smells buttery - I wanna throw up. This eggroll had been in my mouth for .002 seconds too long - I wanna throw up. I've struggled to keep down meals for days now.

I've become pretty agitated and upset that I wasted some buffalo chicken bites from a restaurant because I chewed one for two long and couldnt bear eating the rest. That probably makes it sound like i sit there chewing for five minutes, but it's a pretty typical amount of time: my brain just doesnt think so, I guess.

Other searches said depression, and I guess, but I've been feeling pretty okay for months. I'm not even on my medication anymore and I'm fairly unlikely to accept I'm still clinical. In other words, everything was fine and now I would rather starve than eat.

Yes, I have an appetite. I'm actively hungry. The thought of eating makes me nauseated.

I can forcibly swallow some things, but nothing tastes good it's only just tolerable. Tolerable or vile. Theres no in between or balance.

Sorry if I'm coming off as majorly aggressive, but the eggroll thing happened not long ago and it really pissed me off because i took time from my day to make it and my body is being a jerk about it.

I have a doctor's appointment in a week, but I have about as much faith in them as I do google right now. Is there literally anyone else who is like, "o ye, that happened to me, I feel, dont worry youre fine, something about age and DNA or something"?

Welcome to the community, Captnemo.

Have you ever experienced food or other types of aversions before? I have a daughter who has had a lifelong struggle with eating, but her problems are mainly due to sensory sensitivities. Do food textures bother you?  How are you feeling otherwise? I hope your doctor is supportive and helpful.

I havent. I used to eat everything, like one of the least fussy children. Then, overnight I couldnt stand to eat anything at all (like in the last two weeks). I think I've noticed my sense of smell is more sensitive because a lot of things I'm averted to are largely based on smell.

I just cant wrap my head around the idea that my taste suddenly changed to just hate everything, and I refuse to accept that idea.

I havent been pregnant, havent had an accident or even been sick in months so it was really out of nowhere.

Hello and welcome!

I don't want to scare you :( , but to me (not a medial professional!!!), it sounds like it might be due to a change in your brain - a tumor or a little stroke in the area responsible for appetite / taste sensation. I hope very much I'm wrong and it's only psychological (which is also possible), but in this situation, I would try to get a neurological exam. :(

That sounds more reasonable to me but also... oh my god 😖 I guess I should chat with my doc about that. Thanks for the suggestion, scary as it is. All options need to be addressed when it comes to random and sudden changes.

Hi and welcome.

It might be because you getting older so what food you liked when you were young you may not like now example I use myself

 

When I was young I hated cheese and pizza I could not stand them. Now I like both cheese and  pizza.
