I am 24 years old, 6 ft. 1 in. and 145 pounds. I smoke, drink, and have asthma, depression, Aspergers, and hypoglycemia. I lost 40 pounds in a month three months ago, and I've been struggling to keep weight on ever since. The only thing that changed was my anti depressant. My eating has actually increased since, but I cannot gain the weight back. The new medication works great, and my mood has improved, but my health has gone down hill. I don't even like to stand up straight anymore because you can see my ribs when I do and my stomach is sunken in.
I am afraid to go to my doctor for fear of not being heard. He is usually not very understanding. I just need something to start the conversation off with. I'm very worried about my health. I just got married a month ago, and I don't want to lose my spouse over this.
