This is a tricky one, I used to have a similar issue when I was younger. I would just forget to eat for days because it just didn't hurt (plus I was hardcore addicted to video games lol...). I know money is an issue but what about junk food, can you eat it? When I had no desire to eat back then I think Oreo's and ice cream were all that could trick me back into wanting to. Plus the milk in the ice cream will cancel out a lot of acidity in your stomach so it might not hurt nearly as much. I hope I was off some sort of help


No even before this I didn't like nor could I eat sweets plus I'm lactose intolerant ;~; I do appreciate your response though I really do.

Start with simple foods. Bananas, chicken broth, saltine crackers, yogurt, pudding, jello. Small amounts and work your way up. If basic foods like that are causing you pain and vomiting, you really need to see a medical professional, you may have more going on than just a lack of food for awhile. It may be something as simple as an ulcer, but you won't know for sure without a medical professional.


I really can't afford it plus if it is something bad then they'll need to do more then more money. I already owe thousands on medical bills alone I can't do this I'm not even a legal adult and have an insane amount of money owed.


If it is something bad, you have more immediate problems than long-term medical debt. Some problems don't just go away over time, and are more easily and cheaply treated if they are caught early. And an appointment or walk-in physician is much cheaper than the emergency room.

Assuming your location of Florida in your profile is accurate, check out:
http://www.floridahealthfinder.gov/medical-help-resources/financial-help.aspx
or similar government/chartity (.gov/.org).
At 17, it seems like you should qualify for CHIP https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/1599

The worst thing you can do is sit on symptoms that are hindering your ability to function and not immediately treatable. If you've already tried basic bland food and can't keep it down, seek medical help.

So yeah didn't ask if liquids was fine or not?
Also if you drink and if there is a way through that (as you would need to drink water surely)

That's another problem, I have IC so I have to drink a ton of water. But it doesn't stay down well at all and like 7 minutes later usually ill just throw it up. I drink tea tho and its okay ish I can only drink like half a cup but i still get sick and i feel stuffed like just had a three vourse meal v_v its not like bagged tea either it just tea leafs from a witchcraft store at the time I thought they'd be great because they're for your tummy but now I regret it because I could a used that like $6. I can't drink dairy or acidic stuff anyways. Like orange juice or soda, because of the IC and can't have dairy because I'm lactose intolerant

Have plenty of small sized meals or even snacks, I'd assume that gradually your stomach will be conditioned at a small, but steady pace for you to work your appetite up..I think.

well the issue is that she can't... at all because of pain and throwing up any food she eats or even drinks? (but a few things where "fine"?)
I would assume a operation might be needed.

I don't know what such starvation could do, but it seems some systems in you have been destroyed or something that only fixing from the inside would help?
(also some answers on when, how long etc could help to know a bit more about the problem)

but then again you need to contact someone with exp on what types of issues you could have.

If you still cannot hold anything down; take your ass to a hospital. Would you rather die than owe more money?

Start eating lightly like the other person said, nothing strong, especially not snacks.. Perhaps porridge by boiling rice with water or watery oatmeal. There are also lots of places that give free food every month at churches or community centers.
