i did the same thing. i have SEVERE panic attacks to the point of agoraphobia. when i was at my heaviest, i never wanted to leave the house or see anyone. i chalked it up to the anxiety, but a lot of the anxiety was fear of people talking about how much weight id gained behind my back, making fun of me, and also just the fact that i felt bad about myself and embarrassed. i am JUST now starting to feel somewhat comfortable with the way i look. i know im not thin or even average, but i dont feel HUGE any more. ive noticed that im getting out of the house more and not so nervous to see people. it will happen to you to and it is totally worth it. best motivation in the world, getting your life back.
