Do you ever forget to eat?

(k)InkyIvy (k)InkyIvy
I started getting a headache- not uncommon for me- and couldn't figure out why... Until I realized I hadn't consumed anything all day except about half a pot of coffee.
Do you ever get so wrapped up in whatever you're doing that you forget to eat?

I used to do exactly that quite often, when I was a grad student.

I get busy and it is often past sunset before I start to get really hungry.

Not good for anyone, really. Anyone can develop hypoglycemic episodes from not eating.

Especially on my days off. I hate eating as soon as I wake up, so I usually potter around the house a bit to let me stomach settle first and before I know it, it's 1:00pm and its time for lunch.

Sometimes. usually just breakfast though.
My freshman year of college though, I missed a lot of meals - and sleep.

I do this a lot, and the end result is me feeling like hell and dizzy.

No, I almost never do this. Maybe once a year I might. I think part of it is my history of anorexia, even though I'm pretty much recovered I'm probably always going to be more focused on food than the average person.

Oh my gosh, no. I eat small amounts of food about every 3 hours. I'm one of those who gets "hangry" when I don't eat. If I'm grumpy, my partner knows I need to eat something small.

Very rarely. I'm very into food and cooking, so I'm usually trying to figure out what my next meal will be, or what I will make when.

Right now, I don't have a job, so I have a lot of free time. When I am working, though, I have a tendency to forget to eat simply because I'm so busy. The job I worked at, we weren't allowed breaks, ever. It was, "eat when there's time." So when things slowed down, I would decide I was going to eat, but then Person 1 would need help with something or something needed to be cleaned and on the way to cleaning that, I would see the cooler needed to be stocked, and then I needed to backstock, and then I needed to condense and then suddenly it was time to close up the store and I still hadn't eaten.

No way, I might postpone a meal, but will never forget to eat.

I've done that before, just, not regularly.

It'd be pretty rare for me to forget, I notice my mood and energy level going down if I go hungry.
