I'd hate to be around when someone pricks it.

I don't even want to look like most models. I don't really want to look like anyone. I just want to be me. If people like it or not is fairly irrelevant.

Fuck so-called "experts". I don't need people telling me I'm apparently anorexic when this has nothing to do with it - I don't even need anyone telling me I have an eating disorder. I don't. I'm just too used to listening to my body, and my body is a slight bit too naive when it comes to foodstuffs.

I didn't each much even when I did sports in school. What did make me eat more was being around my mum and dad, and having someone cook for me - I don't really have issues eating food if it's there, nor making food, it's just if I do make food by myself I tend to only be motivated to do that when I'm hungry. Which isn't often.

I haven't "eaten regularly" since I can think. I ate with a bit more regularity with my mum - call it 10% more. That's what I need - 10% more. That's all. I just need a way to psychologically trick myself into making food that 10% of the time, when I'm not hungry, but could eat.

Or, in short... it seems I simply don't have this thing called "appetite".

My current eating pattern has been in place for the past three years - my stomach issues are from the past two-ish/three-ish weeks. I'm probably not eating enough - but its effect is so light its progression is incredibly slow. Which is why I'd prefer coming up with a good psychological trick for myself rather than changing something major.

Dear AG Community Blog,

Why am I no longer prefacing all my posts in this thread with "Dear AG Community Blog"?

Perplexed,

pinksie, I'm going to be blunt with you. Fucking stop thinking you know everything, okay? Doctors and 'experts' don't exist simply to annoy you. They're there to help you, so stop being so damn defensive. Sheesh, no wonder some of us get pissy about you here, you're being passive/aggressive.

You ask for advice and then when we offer it you get all bitchy. What do you want from us?

I never insinuated you were anorexic. NO ONE here ever has, so STFU and at least consult an 'expert'. After all, YOU ARE ANYTHING BUT AN EXPERT in these things, and how in hell would you know that something might be seriously wrong with your body if you don't see an expert? How would you know, huh? Are you yourself a doctor? A nutritionist? NO.

If there IS something wrong with you, you are NEVER gonna know without a doctor or some other expert telling you.

I'm sick of people being so damn manipulative. I offer my help and I get shat on. Story of my life.

Breakfast - not going to happen. I'm hoping to get up from one meal a day to two meals a day, not three. Vitamins, again, sounds like a good idea, given rlpw's advice, so I'll probably try that. No breakfast, though - I've never been a breakfast person. And I don't care that much what studies say.

Thanks for your advice, either way - I know my responses are largely cynical here, but that's because I know what I eat isn't that much the problem, simply because that's always "been the same"; it's more the amount.

What I haven't so far mentioned ('cause I wasn't aware of it) - The bloaty-stomach thing might just be a side-effect of eating too little coupled with my period, because that was the time it was most prominent in. It's less extreme right now. I had the impression it was just getting worse and worse, but as it's gone back in frequency a whole lot now after my period ended, I think that's a strong indicator in favour of hormones fucking around with me a bit, too.

So I'm slightly less fretting - but I still want to try what rlpw suggested, because that sounds just like what I need.

How is it you'd be certain they'd label you as anorexic? Do you even know what that medical term means?

Here. READ. If you actually DO suffer from anorexic symptoms, AT LEAST YOU WOULD KNOW AND CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT rather than getting on not knowing and suffering the consequences later on.

I'm just frustrated because I do care about you and don't want you to get ill if there really is something wrong. That is why you frustrate me.

I do have a lactose intolerance - do they get worse? I've never so far had troubles with cheese, but if they get worse, then that might pertain to it. Would you say that could be it? (I really like cheese, so I've never done anything to avoid it before.)

I'm not certain - I'm being cynical. I've had very bad experiences with doctors... I had to wear glasses for a long time of my life because an "expert" decided my eyesight was screwy. I have very unusual, hyperactively focussing eyes - I get ridiculously high/skewed readings on those optical devices that check your eyesight, as I know now thanks to someone who did know what they were doing - they got contradictive readings, and instead of putting the second reading off as hogwash and unimportant, they took a closer look.

Hence my opinion on "experts".

Mind you, if someone around me would suggest me someone they had good experiences with, I'd go - it's just the general "Go to an expert" I have to sneer at in reflex a little.
