eat for survival, not for pleasure neone?

hey everyone..... i've posted here b4... but i decided to again, i haven't been to the gi doctor in like 2-3 years, had my good and bad days.. but lately i haven't had many good days its been good parts of days..... so i'm back to the gi, whos going to talk to me again maybe try some other meds since i haven't been there for so long the medicial field has updated its meds some..... since i really haven't taken much....... i'm gonna try something to try and find some relief... i've done the nutrionist thing, the calcium thing, the immodium thing(which works wonders but then i don't go for like 3 days causing me a horrible 4th day worse than when i take it in the first place) the papaya enzymes w/ each meal, the probiotics.... i'm just in it for some relief, b/c ive gotten down to around 163 lbs. i used to weigh around 200 lbs.... which was solid when i worked out... but now i never work out.... question i guess... is does anyone feel like there is a form of anorexia in fear of eating and having stomach problems... if i have to go out and do something i'd rather not eat, and when i went on vacation for a week w/out the fam, i pretty much did just that... does anyone else just eat to survive?? not eat for pleasure....?

I know how you feel. Since I got diagnosed with Ibs, I don't enjoy eating either. I have went from 120 to 98 and that's skinny. It's hard for me to maintain weight also. I used to love food, but now it is like my enemy. People don't appreciate the simple things in life untill they are taken away.

Re: eat for survival, not for pleasure neone?

I am just getting to that point. It seems that I can't eat anything anymore. If I eat fatty foods ( tried the Atkins diet) I have terrible indigestion. If I eat carbs, get bloated and indigestion. If I eat dairy, I get the big D, and so on and so on. Is there any enjoyment in eating anymore? I agree about restaurant food. Must take Immodium before and that has unpleasant consequences. I hope there is an answer.
