    Ok this happened to me for 2 1/2 weeks when I suffered my first anxiety attack. So what you need to do is eat small, nutritious meals throughout the day (around every 3 hours). Stay away from too much greasy food during this time. Your appetite will start to come back! It might feel like an eternity but it won't be long smile if you have any questions just ask!

      Yes of course, I like helping people who are going through what I've been through so you've seen me a lot haha! Ok so when it first started I didn't eat anything for two days, just water and crackers and soup. I thought I was really sick. But I realized after a week that it was my anxiety so I decided to eat even it was hard.

      Nope I steered clear of anti depressants. (Thank god) I've done a lot of research into them and for a generalised anxiety disorder like mine I don't think they would have a positive effect. They'll just mask a problem. I just persevered. I made a food diary and realised I was only eating 900-1100 calories a day and drinking 1-1.5 litres of fluid a day. I slowly upped it to a healthy amount, I have 2.8 litres a day now and 2600 calories a day and I feel so much better for it. id recommend making a food diary for everyone on here with depression.

    This happens to me. I use nutritiin shakes sold everywhere. Vanilla, chocolate or strawberry they even have fruit flavore. You need to stabilize sugar levels or it all gets worse. Cliff bars or protein bars  are good to eat with a shake at least twice a day until your appetite returns
