OP, I hear you. I also hear you about the psychologist. That was me.I cannot eat. I was told today I have lost weight, I am already thin. I have no energy to do anything. . I haven't eaten anything (well hardly anything) for about 2 weeks. All I want to do is cry all the time. Life sucks. I want to die.
It's not that I didn't WANT to eat, I COULDN'T eat. Any time I put a morsel in my mouth my body would revolt and I would gag. Making someone eat only causes further stress and compounds the problem. I saw a doctor and was prescribed with medication that assisted me with getting back on track.
And as for the kids, well they didn't factor. 'Doing it for the kids' just wasn't an option for me...I was in a void.
If I could make a suggestion? Not sure it will work as everyone's different but for me, I drank Sustagen. I could just stomach it. My DH eventually got me the hospital grade stuff from the chemist but I started out with that dutch chocolate stuff you get at the supermarket...it's about $6 a tin. I beefed it up with silken tofu ($2) as it's flavourless and full of protein which not only made the drink more nutritious but thickened it to a lovely consistency.
Just an idea.
Mate, I truly hope today is a better one for you. Please keep going.
