Something wrong with me..

    I've always been a pretty solid dude, usually walk around 6'3", 205-210-ish, and actually have the frame to carry another 10-20lbs. I do a physical job, and eat like a horse.. scratch that.. 2 horses..and never gain weight (ladies get jealous.. Lol)

    I drink too much Monster, but that's nothing new.. I've always loved to cook and eat, but the last few months I've just not had an appetite AT ALL! Sometimes I just eat just cause I know I NEED to..

    I know what you're probably thinking.. so what? You don't over eat anymore and that's a problem? But I'm fucking MELTING! I get on the scale almost every morning, but skipped some days until this morning. 168.. wtf? Almost 10lb in a week, and 50lbs in about 6 months.. but still strong as an ox.

    I don't really feel bad, but I do get nauseous on a empty stomach sometimes. Had a pretty bad dizzy spell in the shower few days ago and saved fainting by doing controlled breathing. I've only fainted once ever (few years ago after physical trauma)

    Weed doesn't help my appetite. I've gone a few days now without smoking and feel no different. So I guess it's not hurting my appetite either. I smoke tobacco, but no other drugs or alcohol.

    Idk wtf is up folks. I came here to vent, cause I don't want my family to see me concerned. Everyone is riding me to see a doctor cause they are concerned with the noticeable weight loss. I'm not going to go. I'm just that stupid. Really. I don't want to hear something is wrong with me, cause I don't want to have to face it.

    Just last night, I pretty much diagnosed myself as manic depressive.. I read the symptoms and it made me start to cry. I fit the bill 100%- besides self harming.

    Do you guys think mental Illness could be the underlying cause, and I just never recognized it? Or does it sound more like a physical health issue?

    Sorry for the long post, just wanted to get all that off my chest.

    are you getting enough calories? does it bother you to eat or are you just less interested.
    my body and apatite don't always agree , i have blood sugar and allergy issues and sometimes timing is important, that is eating when i have an apatite, not waiting to long to eat or i don't want to eat. and i wasn't always so sensitive in this way and even these days some days are fine.
    you proly either have something going on in your life or you did. Therapy with a person can help you figure that out; can't hurt.

    Just not interested in eating. I'm not trying to punish myself or anything, so I mean if I'm hungry I will eat for sure.
    You're correct on the timing thing. If I'm hungry but don't get to eat right away, I "miss the window". So I try to get something whenever I can.
    Its been better the last few days. I ate 3 square meals yesterday, with multiple snacks including about 1k calories worth of peanut butter. And this morning, a pound of bacon with some eggs and a half a loaf of toast with jelly. But another thing I didn't think about is that I cut out fast food by 75%- instead of a 75% fast food diet. I just recently started looking at nutritional information on food so I can make sure to eat calorie dense. But looking back, I've always consumed about 5k/day I'm sure.. I never had a problem eating 2 burgers @900 each lol
    And it may sound silly, but I would prefer to find out it's a mental issue vs a physical issue. Yes, I've had a lot going on in life, but I've always dealt with adversity and never had any problems of this type. I agreed with my wife that if I don't start seeing an improvement in a few short weeks I will consider getting evaluated.
    Thank you for taking the time to respond. I'll try to update periodically. Might not be as interesting as a grow journal, but it's the only thing I've got going on right now lol

    It could be a bug. It could be cancer. It could be the new girlfriend. It could be the old ball and chain. It could be diet. It could be the lack of diet. It could be lack of exercise- and no, work you've been doing for years, even physical work, ISN'T EXERCISE for these purposes, as your body is habituated to your work and does it too efficiently to get much workout value from it.

    So. See a doctor to rule out physical problems. See a therapist with/without your wife to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed.

    Check it out. Sort it out. Work it out.

    I wish you the best of luck and keep us informed so we can help- and heckle, cuz what are friends for? Lol

    Bro I know how you feel, I use to weigh 209 lbs, 5'7 now I'm down to 150, I started eating once I started going out more and and find a way to stimulate my appetite, honestly its recently, depression was getting the best of me and i outcast myself from my family, didn't eat, sleep or talked to anyone for months, stressed was the main cause of it for me
    You'll get through it bro

    Appreciate the encouragement from you guys. I've been eating 3meals/3 snacks a day as a goal.. I'm not really "hungry" but I can still chomp it down.. already +5-6lbs in a few days, so if I can keep it up I might get back closer to normal soon! I'll continue to update here occasionally since I don't have a grow journal :( lol

    Get out in the sun as much as you can. This helps fight SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. I get it about this time of year and I have to take extra good care of myself or I get the same way.
