I'm 19 and got diagnosed with depression a year ago. I'm over-weight and have no self-esteem, self-worth or confidence. I use to be ambitious and very career driven yet i seemed to have lost these qualities. I've lost motivation to do anything. I've got to the point where i've thought i can't take anymore.

I find myself getting anxious and worrying about loosing my best friend. Also i feel threatened or jealous if people find him attractive.

Due to my weight i've got no self-esteem, self-worth or confidence. I continuesly compare myself to other girls. Despite being told i'm really pretty and beautiful, i don't believe it. I really want to loose weight but don't have the motivation to do it. I find myself comfort and binge eating when i'm down or upset. I've made myself sick before to try and help me loose weight.

Please help! I don't feel like my friends or family support me and I can't keep feeling like this it's getting me down, this illness and these feelings are ruining my life. I need help controlling my feelings and over-coming them. Thank you!

Hey I'm 20 and I was diagnosed at 19, so I know where you're coming from. From my experience - no one can really help you but yourself (for me this was the hardest thing to realise) I still fall into big bouts of depression and it sucks. But the most anyone can do is listen but the rest is up to you - and the thing is, you're young and you can do anything in the world right now. Start small - maybe say cut out crisps and then two weeks later chocolate as well and it will get easier and easier.

In my opinion, though, it's possible to look amazing and still feel like crap, so find out what causes you to feel like this, to over eat. You might need to see a counsellor or a therapist.

Either way, you can totally, totally fix this. Trust:)
