Hello - welcome to the forum. We all can relate to these things and are here to support you. You have accomplished a lot in your life for having these issues! I can't imagine how stressful medical school and training would be. What kind of a doctor are you? Anxiety/depression can happen to anyone for sure. Hopefully you find some comfort in venting here.

I thought I posted something on this thread yesterday.


Advice from someone who has weight issues.
Lose that weight.
It affects your self esteem big time.
Are you a GP?
Patients may see you as a hypocrite if they have issues like obesity, high BSL, high cholesterol and so on.
Quit your job if you can and fast daily for up to 16 hours. Then eliminate carbs. It worked for me .

Sorry to hear about this. I’m similar in this I’m constantly thinking bad things are going to happen all day every day. I’ve forced myself to get outside go for daily walks even for 10mins. See if you can try. Can always chat in here we are here for you.
