Hi, I'm new here. So I am an underweight 18 year old currently in university. I don't know whether it is anxiety or low self-esteem, but I don't eat very much. Perhaps one meal a day, if anything. I just see eating as a chore, as something I need to do in order to have energy to read. I have been saying I want to gain weight for two years now. But somehow I always 'relapse' into this no food phase at some point in each term. Its not laziness, its just sometimes I don't see the point in getting any food because I am skinny and eating food today will not add several pounds overnight. Its like an unhealthy cycle which all comes down to my anxiety and low-self esteem. I haven't found an eating disorder that fits this. Is there or is this all in my head? It is affecting my heath, I am always tired, low on energy.
