Depression and Obesity

Posted on May 18, 2018

Living with obesity can be lonely, giving depression a foothold. Depression can be debilitating, which can mean missing out on time with friends, going for a relaxing walk, or being able to work full-time. Depression can cause low self-esteem and fatigue, making exercise difficult.

On MyObesityTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with obesity, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Depression is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about depression:

My weight and injuries have cost me so much, especially when it comes to my emotional well being, and I'm so tired of feeling like this.

Today I got the feeling that my husband was embarrassed by me.

I'm beginning to get depressed again. I hate myself. Sorry to be a downer. It's just the way I feel right now.

My depression is really doing a number on me. I have gained some weight back and that makes me even more depressed.

Can you relate?

Have you tried therapy or counselling? It sounds like your self esteem and sadness could use some help. So sorry you are feeling this way.
