unable to concentrate on studies because of looks (gained weight)
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

I'm 20 years old, in 2nd year mbbs. I was under a lot of stress in my 11, 12 grade which led to doctors prescribing me meds but they made me increase almost 20kgs in 1.5year. Nothing fitted me anymore and I felt horrible about myself. My boyfriend of almost 3.5years left me right during my boards which messed up the remaining subjects and also my AIR for mbbs. I'm rn paying a lot (private seat - face value: 7L p.a but ultimately almost 9-10L p.a) and this is constantly bothering me. I feel like a huge burden on my family and I feel very insufficient. After my bf left me ( without giving proper reason) , my self confidence abt looks dropped a lot( he started dating a thin pretty 15yr old just 2 days after our break up) & due to my AIR my confidence in my studies also dropped a lot. I constantly feel like I need to lose more weight ( I've lost 10kgs since my increase- but in an unhealthy fashion) & I can't focus in my studies since I keep thinking that I anyways won't be able to do well. How do I get my confidence back in looks & studies ? I know I'm not perfect but I just want to at least like myself.
