I have been struggling with stomach problems for a few months now. because of this there have been episodes where I wouldnt eat much and now ive lost weight I only weigh 45 kilo. I try very hard to eat but sometimesi completely loose my appatite. im scared that my body is going to waste away because I have no more fat to take off. im forcing myself to eat. im seeing my doctor next week but im not sure what hes going to do. Im pretty scared that my muscles are being eaten since I was small to begin with....

What really happens when you eat? Do you have pain?
