  • Appetite loss? That is only one freakin' symptom, that doesn't qualify you for any mental disorder at all. If it scares you then gradually eat a little more each day until you're conditioned to a normal level of eating.

  • Having a loss of appetitie can be both a symptom of depression/anxiety or could just be because of stress. Also, you mentioned you had a bf, so I'm assuming you are female ( correct me, if im wrong). But, when a woman goes through PMS, she can sometimes lose her appetite. Try eating smaller meals and see if that helps. Don't load up on carbs, and eat lots of protein (peanut butter/celery is a good combo). Dont fret.

  • What are you scared about? That you're not as hungry as usual? It's not a big deal, it can come with stress or anxiety or whatever.
