I sounds that you are in a very desperate space and have struggled for many years with your weight and the prejudice that comes with it. I assume your height to me 1.61m which, with a weight of 115 kilograms, does place you within the morbidly obese category qualifying you for bariatric surgery. You have tried many diets and attempted to follow dietetic advice - all to no sustained effect. I cannot stress how important it is for you to still persevere in your attempts to eat in a healthy way. You also need to be eating healthily if you are to qualify for bariatric surgery. In that regards, you need to consider motivating to your medical aid for cover for such a procedure, despite their initial refusal. Please contact Sr. Gill Gibson at the Chrysalis Clinic in that regard at (021) 674 3309. She will advise you and let you know what you can do.Please let me kn0w if you would like any other referrals fopr someone in your area. Furthermore, it might be a good iddea for you to see a G.P. soon, as some of your symptoms you described might need to be explored.
