As you can read from the title, this topic is going to be about Anorexia Nervosa; something I've had an on-and-off struggle with since I was in sixth grade. If this makes you uncomfortable, please do not read or leave mean replies.. ________
Hi guys, my name is Gemma, I'm sixteen and I have struggled back and fourth with Anorexia since I was 12 years old. From a very young age I had problems with my looks, even when I was five I hated my weight-- at the time I was stick thin too.
As I grew older I slowly grew more and more weight. Currently I'm 5'4, and I weigh 149.0. I have so many issues with this, but I don't want to tell you a sob story. It's ridiculous, I know.
If I'm honest, I'm doubtful I'll stop.
I don't know what's going to happen, but I had a question: U just ate a bowl of spaghetti, and my stomach hurts horribly; I feel like I'm going to hurl and I have a stomach ache. Does anyone else feel like this after eating a first full meal in a week?
Random question but I'm really just not feeling good right now after eating..

I've struggled with Starvation and yes, it hurts when you haven't eaten for a long time. Not eating for a week will make your stomach hurt and it'll make you bloated as well since your body thinks that it won't get any food and it can't trust that it'll get more so during the period you didn't eat, it saved up energy and slowed down your metabolism.
When you start eating normally again, it'll release all of that and it'll make you bloated.
I suggest that you try and get hell for this. Please. I've been through this nightmare, I don't want you to go through it too.
I'm 18 and I've been struggling with anorexia for about 7 years now.
Yes, you will experience discomfort when eating after you've gone through a long period of starvation. It's just because your body is going through a lot and needs to adjust to the changes. It's normal. Just take it slow!
