I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering so much as well.

I know I need to increase my caloric intake. I am trying, but not having any success right now. I know it would help me, yet my brain tells me I am fat and not to eat ... or that I don't deserve to eat.


> Maxime,
> I can empathize with your suffering. I’m not bipolar but med resistant unipolar with severe GAD. Also, I have constant serious GI pain caused by: 1) Constipation needing high doses of Miralax (laxative) and 2) Complications (bloating and gas) from a nissen fundaplication surgery needed because of barrett’s esophagus (pre-cancerous condition). Each day is misery. I sleep most of the time to escape and often wish I could end my suffering.
> I can only offer two suggestions from what I’ve read about you on the boards. First you need to find a way of getting some restorative sleep. Second you need to find a way to eat more than 100-300 calories of food a day. There is no way your body and brain can function with starvation that extreme for long periods of time.
> I am not anorexic but I was a high school wrestler some 30 years ago. To compete at a high level and eventually garner an athletic scholarship to college I dropped a lot of weight to be in a lower weight class. Even though this was totally voluntary and time limited (would eat after the matches) it was brutal to be so hungry. This was before my mental illness but my parents said that I seemed depressed when I was not eating. I know I couldn’t concentrate at school when all I was thinking about was food. Even now I would find it difficult to sleep if I were hungry.
> I don’t know how you can conquer your ED but I would bet if you could get your calorie count out of the starvation range your brain would begin to work more effectively. Possibly, even sleep would come. You have my sincere hope that things improve for you.
> Take care,
> CM
