Is Loosing My Appitite Normal?
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

Lately ive been loosing my appitite. Ive been wanting to sleep more than eat. I dont know where its coming from. Im so used to all my meds so i know its not those. Ive even lost a thing for my favorite foods. Spinach and salad. Its making my baby scared too. I dont want to talk to a doctor for them to keep giving me pills and saying they dont know whats wrong.

I think ups and downs with appetite are normal with depression. I usually just try to roll with it unless it gets extreme.

Recently I became extremely depressed and I was too scared to go to my doctor. I told my psychiatrist and he ordered a series of bloodtests. I procrastinated getting the test and my physical health got worse where I knew something was going wrong.

I finally went to my doctor a week ago and had all the bloodtests done. Turns out I had an infection going on in my system for past few months and am iron deficient. One of the side effects iron deficiency is depression. So if the depression is getting worse or has changed it may be worth to make an appointment with your doctor and let them know the changes that have happened.

Some days, I find myself not eating at all. Usually. When I come off my meds. My appetite comes back, full blown. That's when I start gaining weight back, that I've lost!
