ok id like everyone to read this because you may not and you may be the only person that can relate. so ill cut straight to the point in case you dont want to read it. food. it all tastes bland too me. no amount of spices, flavouring, nothing can change it. it started 3-4 years ago. i had no interest in food. especially food i cooked. i just didnt want it. id make my husband a big plate of what could be summed up to an amateur gourmet meal then id make myself mr noodles. like wtf. who gives up a gourmet meal. the answer me. so we summed it up to after working so hard to cook it i just didnt want it. i mean makes sense. but now….right now im chewing on sour skittles. i taste that they are sour but thats it. i had mint ice cream the other day and i tasted the mint but meh. and to test it i had a hot dog and a burger….meh. now typically its a “ask the doctor” thing but i figured…maybe its my depression causing the problem. and if it is what better place to get the answer (not including the doctor he knows nothing about my depression or eating problems). a little insight/back story.
im not sure youd call it anorexic because im not….”skinny” back then (i was 14-15) if i sucked in my gut you could see my ribs. so skinny but not anorexic skinny. so that out of the way on to the story.
i use to refuse to eat. my depression would act up or id be pissed off and id have no interest in eating supper. i never ate lunch. not since i was 10. and it was nothing for me to skip breakfast before school. so the lunch thing went on for 10 years (i still dont eat lunch and im 20 now) and its still nothing for me to not eat breakfast. although sometimes i do pick up a small bag of chips. and now ill come home and eat a small supper. 1 hotdog (its summer so we bbq). a year ago id completely refuse meals. “im fat” “im ugly” “i dont deserve to eat” im sure you know it. to put it all basically its never been nothing for me to not eat. now food just dosent have much of a taste to me and i dont know why. im just completely uninterested in food. like if i never ate again i wouldnt care. oh and i forgot i attempted starvation too….but i kept getting hungry.
so if you know or relate or a doctor told you it would be cool if you could tell me why my food tastes bland.
