Depression, Anxiety and an Eating Disorder?

I am a teenand I have been feeling depressed for 10 months straight. I have self harmed a lot and whenever I'm around people after cutting, I become petrified that they know what I've done and they'll tell someone and that everyone will know.
For the last few months, every time I think about food and before, during and after eating dinner I feel really sick and nauseous. I've stopped eating lunch and my snacking has started to decrease. I am constantly cold and shaking. I've got a feeing I have depression, anxiety and some kind of eating disorder but I'm not sure. Help!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This could be due to eating disorder or dyspepsia. Take proton pump inhibitors and domeperidone. If problem persists then consult psychiatrist to evaluate you for eating disorder.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
