  • I'm sorry for your pain...no, I cant eat when I'm upset...I think it's healthier to be like you. I get very weak and dizzy not eating.

  • I eat when I'm bored or upset, but when I was clinically depressed I lost every bit of my appetite and had to force myself to eat.

  • No, I don't. Last time I was depressed, I lost 15 lbs in less than 3 weeks!!! Not such a great way to lose weight. I then started eating but was eating healthy and lost another 13 lbs, I was looking great and feeling great and then stupid me went to McD's at that was the end of the weight loss. I will be starting over next week!!! NO soda and NO fast food for me.

  • Sometimes I do, but more often when depressed I am more likely to abstain from eating.
