Get a Bible, start reading John, in the New Testament and find Jesus as your Healer, Deliverer, Comforter and the One who loves you a billion times more than you love your favorite person. No judgement, no condemnation, only acceptance, love and healing. Oceans of love to each and every one of you.

I was a good 145 pound guy athletic, I was to start water polo at my new high school even a second city actor and model heading my way through a life that was once my dream. I lost 27 pounds in just 1 week of countinious stress. Till this day I can't pass a good weight. My mucles have gone down and my interaction with people have fell as well. I can't seem to get better because once I am okay with how I look now someone put me down and I just give up on eating for a few hours. Days I pig out, eating 3500 calories like I done before when I was in sports. I don't train anymore. My doctor told me I have a case of Depression, Bipolar and aniety. Once I found this out my life has never been the same. I am not who I was before because doctors think medication is the only way to fix issues. Let me tell you one thing they cause more issues than make things better. I gotten serious health issues now since I was thrown from Abilify to I believe it was Paxaul.

Hi everyone:) I've been reading all your comments and must say wow! I am a sufferer if generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder for 10 years. I have always ha fluctuations on weight. At first it was weight gain...I had always been a smaller girl so this for me was hard to accept after the birth of my second child and I couldn't lose the weight almost 8 years later. Back in November I started again having issues with wanting to eat, only this time, I was hungry but couldn't eat:( I have lost somewhere between 26 and 28 pounds since then. I felt like I needed to lose the weight and was happy that I had at first but then everyone keeps saying are you still losing weight? You look so skinny! This is disturbing to me because I realize it is a problem and I should stop losing where I'm at and try to maintain my weight do I've been giving my all when it comes to eating more but anxiety doesn't always allow it. What people doesn't realize is that this is something we cannot help and when the remark on our weight it makes us feel as if their is something wrong with us, like we have cancer or some awful disease and we just don't know it which causes more panic, more worry and in turn causes more weight loss. It's a repeating cycle. I wish you all well as I know exactly what your going through. And just know that it is normal to lose weight while stressed. Anxiety and panic put your body in action. Even without working out or exercising your still burning calories when your body is worked up by the attacks, so your not sick just nervous. Take care.

Thank you soo much for everyone who shared your expirence with this as well. I have fallen into deep depression/Stress, In a matter of 3 months I have lost 18 pounds due to my husband leaving me for a friend of mine, leaving me and my one year old alone. I am consistently crying & I have no appitite, I strongly want to over come this, it's taking a complete toll on my body. I went from a D cup to a small C & my spine bones are very noticeable I am 5'6 & I'm weighing 105. Is there any one who has advice? I really don't want to have this situation take over me..I am eating as much as I can drinking ensures and nothing is working.

Anxiety often affects the body in many different ways. The person would not only experience weight but also other different physical problems. When a person is anxious the body might lose weight due to this problem. http://www.zoloftlawsuithelpcenter.com

Hey Silva how are you doing? I hope you're hanging in there. If you get a chance, go back through and check out my story. I've been on Sertraline (zoloft) for about a year and a half now and doing great. I also went to a counselor for the first time in my life about a month ago. The counselor feels not only do I have depression and anxiety but I have Bi Polar 2. I've continued doing all the things I had mentioned earlier and I'm holding steady at a healthy 212 lbs. Im 6'3 and exercise a lot but my low was in the 150s last year and my lowest in adult life was 148. That was bad. If anyone wants to chat let me know. I've been working on ways that people like myself can live happy and healthy lives. I've struggled my entire life with this so I know what you're going through. Im 34 now and I feel better than I have since I was a young kid.

My doctor diagnosed me with ibs (which I don't believe) the end of September and my anxiety kicked in. I have lost 15 pounds since September. Im only 5' and now weight 117 and its stressing me out. I'm thinking I have some type of cancer or something, so I scheduled a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm freaking out I know but I'm going crazy. I changed my diet, I pace around the house for hours my hands and feet are always sweating every morning I wake up having a panic attack.....

I am 5'7" and couldn't break 120 for the longest time. Now I am like 160 and feel fat. My recent anxiety has caused me to go down 10 lbs and sadly I am hoping to get back to about 140 max.in spite of the awfulness of anxiety. However, being depressed is worse to me and makes me gain weight.

I am also worried that i have some kind of bad illness. That's the root of my anxiety....if anything that isn't supposed to happen, happens to me i think its bc of cancer or something equally bad...for instance if someone says i look tired i start to wonder why if im not and worry about that all day. My husband just saw me in the shower and said im losing weight. Which brought me here. Its so bad that i wake up and go to bed nauseous and hardly eat during the day. I just wanna wake up and feel good...I've only been dealing with this since Nov. And on xmas we stayed home and i lied and said i felt like i was getting the flu just outta fear that ill get sick while around my family....

I too have been suffering from some very intense personal issues. I've lost about 6lb in 2 weeks. I'm only 7 stone 8 normally (5'5"). I went to docs who prescribed 2mg diazipam. I ended up not taking it and went to have acupuncture privately !'.…… wow what a difference it made !!! Couldn't believe the difference after 2 x 1 hr sessions. I just told her everything going on and it was like talking to councillor too !! Would def recommend. Re diazipam. I've taken one this afternoon just because I was havin difficult day and it's sef chilled me out ! Song want to rely on them tho ! Good luck

Hi everyone! I have been an anxiety and panic disorder sufferer for 11 years in the last year I have lost 40 pounds. It is normal when you cant or dont want to eat and arent taking in the daily calories you need yet your body is still burning them off. And then when you are anxious or panic you burn even more. Its like exercising without the exercise. Don't worry, just try to eat as many small meals a day as you can and if you can't try ensure, carnation good start or milkshakes. Anything high in calories and don't worry you are not alone. This will get better and it will pass.

everyone i know you might not like the marijuana approach but think about the pills you take they take the compounds from weed and put it in the pills with other nasty shit that hurts you. find weed that gives you an appitite and you will be fine!
