I feel like i dont deserve to eat

hello, i would like to start off by just saying that i havent been diagnosed with an ED or anything like that, and im only posting here cos i dont really know where else to go. anyway, my mental health isnt the best and whenever i feel like a bit of a failure, i feel like i dont deserve a meal. its like i have to do something to deserve that meal, for example, finish all my schoolwork, and whenever i feel like ive failed my schoolwork or ive not completed it to a good standard, its like my brain tells itself im not allowed to eat. im not really sure if its just a mindset or what but people are starting to notice how thin im getting. ive tried to force myself to eat anyway but i either get heavily put off my food or i throw it back up. (not sure if it matters but im a 15 year old male. also feel free to ask literally any questions about me or my eating habits.

thank you for any help and advice.
