I’m suffering so much inside, and I don’t know what to do, or what could be causing this. I am morbidly obese and have severe depression issues. I had a very trying young adulthood and now that I’m a mother and married, everything is just in shambles. My weight is holding me back from making friends and even looking for work. My depression is difficult to control. I’ve met with a therapist and psychiatrist who both feel I have mood problems, but no one really mentions depression.
I often wonder what I’d be good at or what direction I should look to in order to be able to control my food addiction. It’s like I know what’s best for myself, but I have hurdles I can’t seem to cross! What can I do?
Trapped and Restrained
You’re doing the right thing, trying to get help and you need to just keep it up. Keep pounding. Keep chipping at it and sooner or later a piece is going to fall away, which will lead to another, then another, then another. Over time, you can solve your problems, okay? So don’t you give up.
I am not sure what your status is with the psychiatrist or the therapist. You say you “met” with them, but are you in treatment now? Is someone caring for you? Trying to diagnose you? If not, get back in there. And you don’t have to wait for them to figure out you’re depressed. Speak up. Tell them you need help and you need it now. If you have trouble verbalizing this, write down how you’re feeling and bring it to your appointment. Do whatever you have to do!
Now you may need medication, I don’t know. But if I were you, I would get to moving around. Walk! Just around the block. To the end of your street and back. Take this small step and force yourself to do it. You have to start somewhere. People can help, but you have got to help yourself too.
With Jupiter and Pisces strong in your chart, you’ve got a lot of imagination, so how about you use it. For example, if some, you can walk to the end of the block, you know? Allow yourself to be inspired. Think about transcending. Think about being an inspiration yourself.
There is hope, okay? There is always hope. Just keep doing what you are doing… sincerely asking for help and I am sure the universe will provide it.
