Default I'm stuck and don't know what to do...

Hey all!
I just joined this site a couple of days ago in hope of finding some new people who are going through the same journey as I am.
I started loosing weight a year ago, and so far I've lost 17 kg (37 lbs). In my teens I used to be very fit and did lots of sports, but around my 16th birthday something happen and I started to fall into depression very very deep... Which made me binge eat and gain alot of weight. I've gone through numerous of medications and psychiatrists over the years without any luck.
Winter 2013 I got diagnosed with ADD and a very mild Aspergers, which I thought would make me feel better when I got a reason why, but I've only gotten worse ever sense...
I'm now 22, soon 23, got dumped by the first guy I've ever loved three weeks ago, I have one friend who barely has time for me anymore, and can't seem to loose any weight no matter how much I try to watch my diet, and I'm getting more and more depressed every day... I feel stuck and I dont know what to do next.
I've only been dieting the past year, could my stop in weightloss be because I'm not exersicing? Or because I'm so depressed? Or maybe I'm overeating... I dont know. I guess I'm just reaching out for some support.
Thanks for reading.

Default Aspergers and Depression

My 15 year old was just diagnosed with depression. She's Asperger and ADD. Being that her brain is wired differently, she thinks and processes things differently then neuro-typical people. Asperger issues in females seem to be different then in males. I just got her into counseling and she will be getting the 4 hour psych testing in January. I do know mood stabilizers seem to work better then just your normal meds for depression with Aspergers. Counseling paired with medication can greatly help!
