Important to note, before anything and everything that comes next, I don't have an eating disorder, nor do I suffer from any other disorder that may have a food component, such as body dysmorphia. We are not talking about that here. Wanna' talk about that? Go start your own thread. As I've gotten older, I notice that it's really easy for my eating pattern to slip and for me to go into periods where I don't eat because my stomach is simply shut down. Even when young, if I were hungry and the hunger went too long unsatisfied, there would come a point where the hunger would abate and the idea of eating just turned me off. When that point hits, I have to force myself to eat something to get my cycle started again, else go to bed dizzy from sugar-low and wait until the next day. It happens more and more easily as the years have gone by. Typically, I'm sticking my head into the fridge every 10 minutes while my hubby grumbles and complains that I can shove as much food into my face as I please with little-to-no effect on my physical appearance. But if I'm tied up with work, or my muse visits and I'm writing, food gets forgotten and it's become so hard to get my rhythm back on track that I've taken to buying Boost as a last resort to get some calories into a stomach that has become disgusted at the idea of anything more solid. Anyone else? Am I alone here?
