Very depressed, my significant other who I have lived with for 5 months, just left me, no real reason, wont talk to me, comes up with excuses to our mutual friends. Anyway, my body is rejecting any food I try to eat, even a cracker makes me throw up, first few days I couldn't even drink water, still can only sip water slowly. Have been this way for 6 days. Tried nausea medicine, crackers, bread, ginger ale, it all just comes up again. I know most of its psychological, but I'm scared that by the time I've healed emotionally, I'll have hurt my body really badly, I've lost 10 pounds already. I don't know what to do, I'm really scared.

  • Please go and talk to a doctor who can refer you to a psychologist. You'll be ok, but you need to deal with this now.

  • Oh, Please find someone to talk too, it really does help. I have went through what you are going through and realized. No man is worth doing this to yourself. Honestly, I almost lost my daughter, who was 5 at the time, because I thought a man was more important than the life I had around me. I finally realized, it's ok to be by myself. I went to therapy for a few years, I also took anti-depressants. I went from a size 16 to a size 3, not healthy at all, but having someone to talk too really helped. If you need someone, I can give you my e-mail address and we can talk or I can give you my phone number and you can call me. I'm not a therapist, but I can listen. :) Hang in there ok. A friend if you need one, Sandi

  • Are you quite sure it is all psycological?I was once sick in that manner when i was younger. My brother was sick first and then i woke up to vomit all over my bed. I couldnt even drink water the first few days, then eventually i could sip some water but too much made me vomit.It was some sort of bad stomach flu i suppose, it was a while ago so I dont remember the causeBut maybe see a doctor before a therapist?
