    When my anxiety first surfaced I was the same it got to the point were I was afraid to eat because I thought I was going to throw up so for nearly a year I didn't eat properly. But after that I started to realise that I need to eat and I can't let my anxiety win so even if I didn't feel hungry I would make myself eat at least a little bit of something for each meal time

    It depends on the causes of your Anxiety.

    We eat what we need, if you find your eating becomes a problem and your weight is effected you should talk to your GP.

    Have you talked to your GP regards your Anxiety, if not it may be advisable to make that appointment so you can discuss your fears and concerns

    Yes because my stomach is in knots when I'm anxious and I feel nauseous so eating something is the last thing I'm thinking.

    But it also started to work the other way around too where I'd get nervous to eat, especially around people, from fear of getting nauseous. Anxiety is a vicious cycle. I've laterally caused myself to have an anxiety attack over the fear of having one 😭
