1 TW so many problems abd only 3 months in on Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:33 am

I'm 3 months in recovery and I am getting even more depressed by the day. I have really bad uneven weight distribution on my tummy, face and legs to the point where someone made a pregnancy comment. I don't go out in public anymore because I'm too embarrassed so I've lost contact with all my friends.
I have insomnia so bad which makes my eczema bad so I'm covered in horrible rashes and constantly itching. I haven't slept now in four days at all and have been sleeping only an hour or two a night for about two weeks.
My extreme hunger is unbearable, I eat do much that I'm sick and I also suffer with real bad acid reflux.
I just feel like I can't go on and I know even when my weight distributes which could take months and months, I'm not going go taper down and I'm the biggest I've ever been. All this is causing problems in my relationship too and I can feel my partner getting distant.
I'm struggling so much and I feel so repulsive. Sad

I'm also about three months into recovery and I'm struggling too, but you know what? We can't quit now, because then everything would have been for nothing. Weight redistribution is probably not that far into the future, so just hang in there! And f*** those people with comments about your appearance, you are beautiful! They shouldn't judge an unfinished painting Smile 
I get that you don't feel good about socializing right now, but what about calling a friend and letting him/her know that you need support? Sometimes it's easier talking over the phone than face to face, and the response is almost always positive if you try that because people tend to care a lot more than you think Smile  I love you I love you

Recovery IS hard! I struggled too. A lot. You just have to keep on going. Regarding the rashes and physical symptoms, I recommend you to get it checked at a doctor, if you have not already.
