I am a new member and wanted to stay hello. I also wanted to ask a question. When I have a bout of strong anxiety the first thing that goes is my appetite. It’s as if my stomach completely shuts down and food is the last thing I could possibly want. But I realize not eating or drinking can cause more problems and dehydration, so it’s a vicious cycle. I know many people tend to eat more when anxious. Maybe the answer is to just not fight it and listen to my body, but my doctor says to not get dehydrated. So I’ve been forcing myself to drink and eat as much as I can. I’m hoping to get some comfort by hearing from others who experience this and, if you’d like, what’s worked for you in breaking this cycle. Or even if you can simply relate and share your experience, I’ll feel less alone in this. Thank you for reading.
