    Hi,I'm a 19 male.
    I've been having anorexia for as long as I remember.
    It becomes really serious when I interact with the opposite sex.
    I feel like I'm gonna vomit while swallowing when I get into that situation.
    It became more difficult now since I'm going to university so I'll be meeting girls around and therefore I get this anorexia all the time.
    I remember I couldn't eat ANYTHING for 2 days because we were in vacation with a family I had a crush on their daughter!
    Bunnychic responded:
    That's not anorexia, that's called love. you probably just get nervous and get nauseous.

    Or you have some kind of phobia.

    But an ED, no. You just need to get rid of the fear or nervousness you have. Perhaps a therapist can help. But either way it's not a medical issue
    alirisiver replied to Bunnychic's response:
    Bunnychic ,thanks for responding to my problem.
    In fact I don't really hope this is love.Since it's for Most of women I see.Am I gonna love them all?
