Eating guilt

My family always guilt me when I eat. They say meds dont make me fat and that I like to be fat. Its bs I was 135lb before sz 5ft10. My father yells at me to eat less and to eat stuff I don’t like like their food that has garlic and onions. These make me vomit and they make jokes that I am not a real man bcz i can’t eat those. He wants me to eat once a day.

That’s hard to deal with. I disagree with one meal per day. I eat 4 small meals a day because it keeps my metabolism going. Do you think you eat too much?

They’re also not on any psych med, they have no mental or physical illness.

Well maybe you could try eating less if you can’t exercise. Eat half the portion you normally eat. That should help

I’m on psych meds, and I have both mental and physical illness and I lost the weight. It is possible. Don’t give up

I want to live alone but scared of that and that I will become lonely with no one there to help me.

If you try it out, can you go back home if it doesn’t work out?

Jesus @Aziz they treat you horribly. I’d rip my parents apart if they said any of those things to me.

I tried living in university housing, I got bored and went back to my parents at the end of the day. Didn’t even sleep a night there, maybe I was scared, I feel like I am a big baby, I can’t live without my parents. I paid for 1 month university housing and I didn’t even stay a whole day, they refused to refund me.
