I can totally relate Bre.
Currently i am eating a baked butternut squash drowned in butter and sugar.
My problem is if i go under 100 lbs my Dr puts me in the hospital. Not fun.

Especially when its in a MHU ( Mental Health Unit ).
That alone is scarey enough.
Anyways so my Dr put me on Clonidine.
It is suppose to help me gain weight.

I have not been over 103llbs for about 10+
yrs. My smallest weight is 93lbs. about 4 yrs. ago.
I just want to gain normal weight.

Any suggestions?
