Saved a cat today with growingupinmyskin. It’s the beautiful things like that which lead me to think everything will be okay.
I think you might get a different answer to this depending on who you ask and what phase of disease they’re in. In my experience, it’s both. I’m sure every person has a slightly different experience. Physically, my hunger disappeared but it was all my mind could think about. I spent hours online looking at food blogs or recipes and planning out things that I would never eat. I also had dreams and nightmares about eating large amounts of food.
It also depends on what part of the illness you are in. Many people experience hunger for a while, but after a certain point the hunger stops as the body shuts down. A slowed metabolism decreases hunger signals, and it also decreases everything else the body does. Also, the strong feelings of anxiety about eating/food/the body seem to overwhelm the mind and block out the hunger. The feeling of hunger can incite panic, which can make one adverse to eating. Eventually someone can feel like hunger and eating are not connected the way they are for most people.
Getting hunger cues back is an important part of recovery and hunger can be kind of unpredictable when people begin to refeed. During recovery someone might experience both underactive hunger and extreme hunger as the body tries to readjust to eating, digesting, and metabolizing. Again, these are just one person’s experiences.
If you’re interested in learning more about the physical and psychological impacts of starvation or semi-starvation, you might want to read about the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. Wishing you and your sister all the best <3
This is a friendly reminder that: everyone needs to eat in order to survive.
And that includes you as well - no matter what ED tries to convince you.
Food is not the enemy; ED is.

“I moved here from Jamaica when I was six, and my accent was so bad that I had to spend two years in ESL classes before anyone could understand me. I remember feeling very frustrated. I was surrounded by people with really thick accents who were trying to tell me that I needed to get rid of my accent.”
