What is wrong with me

I have had a particularly stressful year, many deaths in the family and accusations of affairs etc. At the moment I am just so tired both mentally and physically. I am suffering from headaches which I never used to. I had my blood pressure checked a little while ago at it was 105 over 60 which I am lead to believe is low. I have always had a weight problem and have been dieting for three years and have shed 27 kg. Since the death of my dad 6 months ago, my weight has been increasing steadily and I feel that I just don' t have the " guts"  to do anything about it! I seem to have lost interest in most things and feel most comfortable when I sleep because none of my worries bother me. I know that I have to pick myself up and carry on but I have lost that willpower that I once had! On top of the tiredness, I seem to have an uncontrollable appetite aswell. What is going on with me? Could it be a thyroid issue or something else? It concerns me that at this rate I will be right back where I started with regards to my weight, I have already gained 7,5 kg in 6 months. Please help me, I feel like I am losing all control of what I once had such a good hold on.

Dear Anon
You have typical symptoms of a reactive depression due to emotional stress and trauma. It may help to take an antidepressant but ask your doctor to prescribe one that won't cause weight gain.

Just self motivate yourself and why it would be better as to keep your weight under control and then you won' t even feel hungry and when you do use portion contol and water as substitute for unhealthy foods.

Given what you have been going through, one possible thing you could have is depression. Go and see your gp and maybe have a complete medical.
