    Does that count as a eating disorder? I am have been really stressed out and have lost a lot of weight. I do eat, but not nearly enough.

    i'm have the same problem :( its not good cos i cant dont have anything to lose. im gonna try soup and protein drinks in little sips. many people cant eat when theyre anxious, sad and upset. if it last a long time then it's a problem. you have to deal with the root of your stress. good luck

    This sometimes helps me feel like not killing myself, but sometimes this also makes things worse. I hate it.

    Anorexia is often defined as a lack/loss of appetite for food. Does the stress make you not hungry at all or do you feel like you can't keep anything down? Do you just forget to eat?
    If you can't sit down to eat a regular meal or if solid food makes you sick. Try shakes like slim-fast or ensure. They have vitamins and nutrients in them that keep you nourished and will keep you from losing more weight.
