> when people say the lose their appetite when depressed, is it that the thought of food repulses them or that they simply don't feel hungry?
> i was given a proton-pump inhibitor for reflux, but i only experience the symptoms sporadically (and in fact they had mostly disappeared at one point). they're pretty bad now because i wake up not feeling like eating at all, but then again part of me also compulsively likes to eat (due to blood sugar issues), so i'll eat (or overeat) regardless and then find it hard to digest,etc.
> i don't want to be on omeprazole for long because it screws with mineral & b12 absorption. so what's the solution? just don't eat if you don't feel like it?
Formerly depression and anxiety never really dampened my desire for food. Now that I am in adrenal burnout or severe major depression I guess food just makes me nauseus. I simply cannot eat very much or I feel really sick.
