Sometimes I faint because I refuse to eat. Not for the purpose of anorexia, but because I am terrified of food and what it does to my body (often in no way, shape or form agreeing with me...). I'm sure eating less also accounts for how much more I sleep. Food needs to be nearly stuffed down my throat by a loved one unless I feel well :(. I drink endless amounts of V8 Fusion and meal replacement shakes, but the honest truth is that I have very little appetite. Whatsoever. Bleh.
Also, I hurt myself a bit when I fainted, by hitting the corner of a wall, so I really should smarten the hell up right??

Sadly, I'm still obsessed with the subject - especially high end creations of organic food. Maybe someday my loves will overlap :).
I've also developed substantially more social anxiety, and have a hard time leaving the house without a well-packed bag of illness-helpers.
In addition to that, I've become more paranoid that people think that I'm a complete buzzkill, incredibly boring, and a variety of other odd hang-ups. I can catch these thoughts and turn them more positive, but they show up a LOT.
Does anyone else find they have any strange hang-ups like this in regards to their illness?? I'm sure I have a million-more, but these are just flying off of the top of my head.
I sometimes wonder if I'm moving forward or just staying at standstill. My twitter friends and I have determined that I need a pet.
