Hi everyone, I've been feeling better lately but there are days that could use some sunshine.
Basically, around 4 months ago, I started having this weight loss scare as a lot of people kept telling me that I lost weight.
With a mixture of some bacterial diarrhea and a few exercises, I dropped from 207 lbs to 184 lbs in a span of 3 - 4 months. Really scary.
My fears started to alleviate only when this January I started to eat a lot and gain weight again (although my stomach has been complaining about the acid now!). I gained weight back to 190 lbs.
That somehow helped me with my fear but there are just days like this that I feel alone and then start thinking about really negative thoughts about this.
For example, I look at my recent pictures and then tell myself "Oh my god, I think I look thinner". And then I would spend minutes in front of the mirror just looking at my features and see if I am still losing weight. I even take photos of myself using my smartphone just to see if I look thinner or fatter. More often than not, I end up in a very sad condition.
My stool exam during my weight loss scare turned out fine. I had a CBC test with differential count last January which turned out "super perfect" according to my GP. Basically, I am scared of lymphoma/leukemia and stomach cancer (I'm 23 years old).
Is this just my HA trying to creep itself back in?
