I was anorexic for many years and I know what's causing it. Not because I'm a nurse, but because It happened to me. You see, when you don't eat, gasses build up as a results of the hydrochloric acid secreted in the stomach. There is nothing there to digest your food, this acid keeps building and accumulation and causes you a great amount of gas. What's finally going to happen is that you stomach will begin to consume itself once all your fat reserves are gone. You will loose you stomach lining, causing great pain and when the acid has to be released, you will have diarrhea however, there are not food particles in it. Yes, that acid is rancid. So you are not doing yourself any favors by trying to loose weight that way. I did this in my 20s, I am now 62 and still suffer the consequences from anorexia. Join a support group because if you continue on this path, you are going to end up in the hospital. Not right away, but you will, Take it from one who's been there and regrets every minute of it.
Edit, if you need support, I'm right here. You can e-mail me but because of so many spam type annoyances, you must title it like. "I'm the one that ask for our help with anorexie"
otheriwise, I delete them Please, let me help you through this.
RN No longer anorexic.
