I have a few other threads discussing in detail what I'm going through, but essentially I have been having nausea for nearly 5 months, every day. There are some times where I feel almost fine but still a bit off, and other times when I feel awful all day and can barely do much of anything. One of my biggest problems with this has been eating enough, as I'm not someone who deals well with nausea and the thought of throwing up upsets me. In the past when I've been nauseous, it usually only lasts a few minutes or maybe an hour or so, then it fades, so I've never had this issue and I don't really know how to address it.
In terms of eating, I know on an average day I definitely do not get enough calories, but when I'm feeling alright I definitely eat more. I'm only 20 years old and away at school, which definitely complicates things, so I've lost nearly 20 pounds since the start of January. Luckily finals are next week so I'll be heading home, where I can eat more often/just better in general.
I wanted to know if anyone has similar experiences/stomach problems, and how you go about eating on a day to day basis, especially on days when you aren't feeling well. Also, what foods should I be looking to eat? I eat a lot of crackers and pretzels and toast, but in terms of "real food" I always seem stuck. I usually go for grilled chicken, cooked veggies and mashed potatoes to be safe, but I obviously can't eat the same thing everyday. Also, I'm not a big fan of soups, especially chicken broth, so that makes things harder than they have to be.
So, if anyone had any tips or know of any go-to foods that are easy to digest but preferably high in calories, please let me know! I can't keep losing weight, I'm already pushing being underweight as it is
