Hi, I'm Jessi. I'm almost 18 and have been battling major depression and anxiety for 5 years. Last summer i went on a binge of sorts. I drank and smoked weed heavily and I ended up only eating when I was high. Loads and loads of food. And when I was sober, I would never be hungry. After the summer I went back to school, but i never had an appetite unless I was high or drunk. So I decided to quit everything and see if that helped. But ever since then I hardly can get food down. the only time I can really eat is when my stomach is in too much pain. I just don't want to eat anymore. I think I could lose some fat but I'm already 150 at 5'9. I want to know if this will fix itself or if this is a type of eating disorder.

I would go see a doctor if you are concerned about having an eating disorder. It is better to be safe than sorry. It sounds like you might have some problems with food but I am no doctor. Regardless of if you have an eating disorder or not the issue still needs to be addressed along with your drug use, drinking, depression and anxiety.

Hope this helps,
