I feel fat 
30th-Jan-2007 01:06 am
I may have a disease such as Cileacs, Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. I went to the doctor last week and she weighed me. I've gained weight twice in the year and a half that I've been living out of home.(There are other symptoms that aren't relevant here) It turns out I've gained 20 kg in total. Weight and nutrition is a known trigger for me but I do need to get diagnosed. Mum has always gone on and on about it and maybe borderline on an ed. Problem is feeling depressed about it is stopping me from going to bed.

I know exactly how you feel, I've been going through this for about 6 months now, I've completely lost my appetite and haven't gained any weight, down to 105 lbs. I just recently saw a GI specialist and have a upper endoscopy scheduled for Thursday.
You might want to get the same procedure done if you haven't already, and start taking a medication that will heal your stomach and get you feeling better. Just know that it will pass soon and it won't last forever. I hope things turn out okay and they can figure out what exactly is wrong.

Lack of appetite is certainly not one of my problems. The mostly likely diseases aren't curable but thanks for the thought.

Have you seen a specialist yet?

I live with Crohn's disease, so I can understand the frustration. I have to be really careful with the Crohn's, but when I see I've gained weight, I have an internal struggle not to let the emotions take over me.

I was fine as long as I didn't know how much I'd gained. The household doesn't even own a scale.

That's something I do, too - I don't own a scale, and it makes it much easier just to not know the numbers
