I am starving to death!!!

At least my body thinks so! I've got a ridiculous cold! I go 2 extreme ways when sick, I either literally stop eating and drinking until it passes (and dh has to shove food in me) or I can't stop eating. This cold, I can't stop eating! I'm starving! I hate it!

So do you get like this too? Why does my body think its starving?!

Bump! I have no idea..
Are you pregnant?
I'm the opposite, when I'm sick I don't have a appetite.

I get the same way sometimes its almost like my body thinks eating huge amounts of everything will heal it some how.

Ha, no. I can't get pregnant anymore :) I like it better when I don't have an appetite

I thought I was the only one! If I'm so sick I'm throwing up then I can't eat anything. Otherwise I just eat and eat and eat and I also crave junky stuff. :-P

Ive had the flu all week and I have been hungry more than usual too.Maybe its our bodies way of looking for the nutrients it needs to fight off the cold? No idea.

I eat and drink constantly and have an unusual urge to watch every scary movie in the house until I get better.

Very interesting and now that you say that, any time I've been sick with a fever, I refuse to eat!
