RYN079, loss of appetite is a common symptom of anxiety, mine can last for months... I am getting better and getting my appetite back slowly after getting on Veneflaxine. I eat also not because I enjoy it but because I know I have to for my survival. I almost feel like I'm killing a cat when I eat when I have anxiety, like it's illegal... I get it a lot... The stress of not being with my purring friend and avocado tree makes me anxious and loose my appetite, it's a common symptom of anxiety and stress in general.
