I haven't seen anything on the site that addresses this issue. Would be great if I could find out more about it as well as what I can do about it…I have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder with anorexic tendencies. Sounds crazy for sure. There are very few foods I can stand to eat. much of the time when I try to eat, I put a bite of food in my mouth I can't even think about chewing and swallowing it. At other times I will put food in my mouth and I keep it there because I simply cannot bring myself to swallow it and I end up spitting it in a napkin. This depression has been being treated for well over a year but the eating issue remains strong. Has anybody ever heard of an issue like this? I'm at a loss as to what I can do to change this.

Hi Anon. Welcome to DC. I have bipolar depression. So, I'm glad your seeing a therapist. Does he/she know about the anorexic issues? If not, why not? You say you've been seeing the therapist for over a year now, the relationship should be built at this point to be discussing this serious of an issue. Anorexia is a very deadly disease, as I know you know, your no dummy. If you haven't already talked to the therapist about this issue, now is the best time to do so, and even to discuss it with your doctor or endocrinologist. Please. Heidi

I queried the DC search box and found this page of discussions, news, and articles about anoreia ~ There's not a lot there, but it should give you a sense of what is on this site re anorexia.

Have you seen a therapist about this deadly mental health issue? If not you should ASAP.

God's best to you
