    The latest development in my mental health roller coaster is the development of food phobias. It started about a month ago but was purely warm/hot food. Each time I tried to eat / thought about eating something in this category I would feel physically sick to the point I shake and wretch.

    This has now moved on to food in general hot, cold or warm. Even the thought of eating sets me off. I am currently forcing myself to endure at least one meal per day (which still has to be cold - the warm/hot thing is worse). Upon getting hungry, I go into the kitchen - wretch - shake - leave the kitchen. I continue this for however long it takes to desenitize myself which can be between 1 hour and 5 hours. Once I have the food itself the ordeal of eating it can take just as long.

    I'm awaiting a CMHT assessment so hoping they might be able to offer advise, but wondered if anyone else had encountered this and what did you do?
