Customer Question

I have a bearded dragon that is about a year old she is a rescue and her previous owner rarely held her. I try to handle her daily for short periods of time. I found out this was really stressing her out so I stopped recently, but now she has gone a week without eating and she wont poop. She curls up in a ball in the corner of her cage and won't move. She has already shed her skin so I know it can't be that. Please help any advice would be useful at this point.
