A psychologist for gaining weight?
Is there such a thing as someone who would help you with the psychological aspects of gaining weight or other things related to food? I don't have an eating disorder but I do get very bad anxiety at times and trying to regain weight back to a healthy level (lost after a lot of stressors I couldn't cope with, losing both parents in 7 months, food sensitivities, etc) is actually very difficult. There's also not a lot of support groups for that kind of thing.
For example, many foods were just making me ill before. Now, even if I eat something and don't feel ill after a few hours I'm nervous until at least 12 hours have gone by. I have to try very hard to reach enough calories. I'm slowly regaining an appetite but I have to track everything and basically cook/prep food all day to achieve this. I wish I had someone I could talk to specifically about this. It feels pretty lonely. I found one or 2 groups about needing to gain weight but even there it is not very active. (Though it was comforting to read similar experiences with feeling like 2000+ calories is beyond what you desire to eat).
I could see a regular psychologist but don't know if they would get bored hearing about my diet. A nutritionist would be great but they don't really need or have time to focus on psychology. I mean that is not their job. And I don't have an eating disorder.
I'm okay with it if nothing else is going on but as soon as there's any additional stressor I feel like I might start losing weight again. I also have quite bad PTSD from life events.
