Could this be considered self harm? Like not eating for days on end even if you're hungry :mellow:
If you're purposefully avoiding eating for days on end... It can certainly be a form of self harm.
Sometimes, I don't eat even if I'm hungry either due to laziness or I really don't feel like eating even though I'm hungry, although I don't consider this self-harm, just laziness/apathy.
Yes I think it can definitely be self harm. It depends on your attentions. Like the above poster said, it can be for different reasons, for instance laziness, but if you are intending to harm yourself by doing this then it might want to be something you consider getting help for or paying closer attention too.
Perhaps. I think it depends on your motivations for not eating.
Does it make you feel better? Worse?
Does food not appeal to you?
Do you want to lose weight?
