Aki - I could not have said better how I feel currently. BJ, I'd like to add to what you said.
It seems like depression is just another diet from the perspective of our body. From my experience, in the lowest levels of depression I've been in, I have lost weight during the depression. However, it doesn't take long as soon as I'm out of depression and start eating again for the weight to come back on. In the same way my weight has risen higher than it was before dieting, I have seen the same thing happen to me after major depression.
The worst of it all? Apparently, major depression and hovering suicidal is a great thing! Everyone was complimenting me on my weight loss. It shows how little people actually care about your health and well-being. If someone of average weight, or even slightly considered overweight, starts dropping so many pounds - everyone shows extreme concern and sympathy.
The constant tug towards depression - (being reminded every day, every where, that fat and ugly are synonyms) keeps me in at least mild depression most of the time. My eating is extremely irregular.
