    reading posts on here? I know some of us don't like to eat at all, but sometimes I eat at my computer, and sometimes it's while I'm reading posts about illness.

    Yes, I eat at my computer quite frequently. If I'm occupied while I'm eating, I don't worry about it so much.

    I dont generally eat but am usually relaxing with a glass of wine after a long and hard dayat work (today being an exception but I still have a glass of wine!!!).


    It doesnt bother me reading about illness and eating at the same time tho!!!

    I ate while searching for vomiting videos to put on my exposure website - lol. Now I totally get how doctors can eat before/after surgery or working in the ER.

    Sometimes I eat while I'm at the computer too. I find it comforting and it makes it seem like I'm "not eating alone". Eating alone is freaky for me and usually has *other intentions*, so eating at the computer is actually a good thing for me. I also love to drink my sodas while online too

    I pretty much have to be occupied while eating. I really don't like to just focus on food while I eat.

    I find it more comforting to eat at the computer while shopping for an item or just surfing the web. I find that I eat more this way. I prefer it this way even though my husband likes for us to eat together but they just eat too fast. I just can't eat alone unless I'm occupied watching some lifetime movie or cartoons or at the comp. YOU are NOT alone. It does feel like you are eating with someone else. I don't think this is a harmful habit. A lot of us eat and drive. We just live in a world where we multitask to get the most done in a day.

    I've just been eating some Easter Egg while reading through all the Active Topics. I'm actually feeling really icky - tension in my head and shoulders, and quite n* too, but because i'm so tired of feeling n*, I thought if I ate some chocolate I would know either way if something is going to develop from it. I still don't know cos I don't feel any better or worse - grrr!


    If i'm eating meat I like to be able to concentrate and see what i'm doing so that i can see if its cooked properly or not!

    I graze constantly, often while I'm on these forums. I can't be on a computer without at least drinking pop.

    I always eat at the computer. Today I devoured a gigantic bag of sour dough pretzels while shopping on ebay because my throat hurts and pretzels always seem to help!

    I sometimes snack while I'm at the computer. I'm never without a can of pop, though.

    I eat so much constantly!! In fact, I can't watch TV without eating something. Weird, huh? I would eat at the computer, except my dad has this rule about no crumbs in the keyboard. I do drink on the computer though!

    My laptop is a haven for crumbs.....very little makes me lose my appetite [img]smileys/smilies_04.gif[/img]. I eat while doing my research (which is on a topic that makes many lose their appetite), before/after cleaning the litter box, while in the bath......the only thing that makes me REALLY lose my appetite is if I see someone vomit right in front of me- and even then, once I am out of the situation chances are I'll be eating again, lol.
