Vomiting
Lisa, this sounds like more than a depression for the realm of family and friends, though a listening ear from someone close is still invaluable. I have some questions to ask you before I give the rest of my comments. Respond here that you got this and we can continue this privately.

Lisa, if you are feeling depressed you should reach out to family or friends. Do you have anyone you can talk to?
