Thumbs down I'm new.....in search of friends online

hi everyone. I'm bobbie, i'm 23 years old and i am really glad i found this forum. I am overweight, too, have been my whole life and have never even tried to change it. I eat out of habit. I dont have to be hungry, yet i fill myself so full that i could burst. I dont exercise, I got laid off when my office downsized to only 5 employees from 100, so i fall asleep around 5 or 6 am, with the help of an ativan. and i wake up around 1 or 2....i then watch tv. I have lost contact with all friends. I have an awesome camaro z28 that is reallllllly sharp,,,,but i hardly drive it cause for one.....i have no place to go. two.....i feel like a blimp sitting behind the wheel...and three...i just dont wanna go anywhere! some days i dont even comb my hair. I'm hoping this board will help me. over the weekend my boyfriend took me shopping.....my back hurt the whole time. but i was too embarrassed to stop him. a couple weeks ago, i found out i had bursitis in my knee...so i got a shot of cortizone in my knee. my dad says its all in my head. that its a psychological disorder. i asked him if my weight was all in my head too or did he see it hanging on me? its starting to interfere in my relationship as well. i was seperated from my exhusband for 14 months before my divorce was final.....in the meantime i met dave. we have been together for a year. he is awesome! but the medicine I take for depression (celexa) has made me lose my sex drive. plus im always grouchy and then i feel bad after i blow up at him and end up aplogizing. i fear him leaving me. he is acting different....... sorry to ramble. just got carried away

Welcome Sweetpea,

I understand totally how you feel. I've been depressed for over 4 years now and I am finally going tomorrow to a doctor FINALLY !!!!! I use to think I could snap out of it myself, and like your Father, I thought it was just in my mind...I even went to counceling, grieving counceling etc....and so far nothing. I eat and eat I think to fill a void inside me. And I can't stop.

I hope we can help you and vice verse.

And about rambeling on, PLEASE do so, thats what we are here for.

Love Leens
