This does not sound like an eating disorder to me.  It just sounds like your natural response to stress.  Nothing much you can do about what other people think or say about your weight.  Just try to eat as much as you can if you are too thin to get yourself to a healthy weight.  What you are going through is very stressful and difficult but if you can figure out a way to diminish the stress upon yourself then your natural appetite will come back.  You might ask your doctor for some medication to ease the stress.
