~Can't Do It Before The Doctor~

Good morning my friends! I responded to a discussion yesterday about being anxious and eating more when your anxious. I have the opposite problem. When I'm anxious or nervous about something I cannot eat much. It actually makes me sick to eat! This morning I tried to eat because I thought I was hungry. I got half my bagel down and I could not eat anymore of it. I get so nervous before any appointment I go to, especially when it's a doctor appointment. My body drives me crazy sometimes...Lol. For those wondering no power yet...hoping soon!

I know that you don't like hospitals, so maybe your anxiety surrounds the doctor and whole medical atmosphere. You're a great Mom, and obviously you love children, so just try (I know that its hard) to focus on the thought that you are going to go and take a special peek at your new baby. Play a little trick with your mind so that you are not so nervous, AND good luck!!

@Juliaacv Yeah it is anything to do with medical which is weird since most of my life I wanted to be a doctor and help others. Thank you, I will try to keep my focus on that instead of how nervous I am! =)

I understand the anxiety before going to doctors. It's how I feel each time I go in for an MRI or cats can... The fear wants to take over.

@LovingMyBabies I hear you. I never thought I would be able to handle them. We are much stronger than we think.

Sometimes anxiety makes me unable to eat, other times it makes me unable to stop eating. Hope Dr. visit sets your mind at ease. The longest we ever went without power was 3 days. We went and bought a generater. Mainly so food wouldn't spoil. But once we had it, hubby just had to have the Tv on too. He is an adict.?? Now, if the power is off for more than an hour, he fires up the generater.

@LovingMyBabies we had a freezer full of food so thought it worth the expense to save the food. I wonder if they ever go on sale.

Sometimes when I have the bad mood, I will lose the appetite. So I think it is very normal for you to behave like this.

I never lose my appetite really, but try to eat mostly at meal time. Our bodies do seem to control our minds at times.

Maybe it just doesn't work for you of eating more when anxious.

It actually goes both ways.....some people tend to eat more, some people can't really eat much, some even not at all.....having all t butterflies in the stomach....

We convince ourselves about what and when we can eat and we develop false truths and bad habits. Tthe trick is to develop healthy habits and they will see you through life and set a good example for the kiddos too.
